Date Climbed: Sep 25, 2006


It was a beautiful day to hike. Started at 6am, summited around 10:55am and got back down to trailhead at 2:25pm.

The section between the saddle and the summit was tough but was exhilarating when accomplished.

We passed a bicyclist while driving up to TH who later passed us just before the summit, he had rode from Flagstaff, which made our feat not as impressive. Luckily he was able to take our picture as no one else was around, there was almost no traffic on the Mountain, I was quite suprised. There was however a severe swarm of unidentified bugs at the summit, which caused us, unfortunately, to stay on top about 60 seconds. Weather was perfect, no wind, and temps in the mid 70s.

Capped off a nice week in Arizona for us. Spent the prior five days in the Grand Canyon and Havasu Canyon. The wind at the summit was the strongest I have ever experienced. Unreal, we had to crawl at times. Very nice area.

I climbed this peak twice. In September of '85 we nearly got blown off the peak. It was very difficult to even stand once we got near the top. In late October of the same year there was some snow but it was calm and clear with lots of interesting rime on the summit rocks...and what a view!

Cold and windy but otherwise a great hike. The north rim of the Grand Canyon is clear. Hardly any snow which was surprising.

On a business trip to Phoenix, I made my way up to Flagstaff for some hiking. What a great mountain. Of course, the winds almost blew me back to Phoenix.

Had to abort about 30 yards from the summit. Winds were insanely strong! Thought I was going to get blown off the mountain. Posted a trip report of that day.

Date Climbed: May 10, 2006


Couldn't have asked for better weather, it was perfect. Great hike and a good companion to enjoy the hike with. Snow still in the trees but none on the ridge above timberline. Met a few others as we descended who were chasing the state highpoints and a SP member who takes awesome photos. (paganiphotos)

Date Climbed: Feb 11, 2006
Since the snow has not come, we climb the nearly bare summit ridge and see the sunrise, casting an amazing shadow over the land. It is bitterly cold and windy, but it is beautiful.

Was lucky to team up with a local. Broke trail from about 10K to the ridge. Not much snow on the ridge, totally windless on the summit, should have brought a newspaper. Down via the ski slopes. Great day!

Date Climbed: Jun 8, 1985


Drove down from Vegas the night before. Started hiking early before the ski lift started operating (so I saved some money and later got a free ride down). Nice weather, met several hikers packing boots and skis so they could ski down the north face.

Climbed this guy during a family reunion with my cousin. He had to stop when we got to the saddle but told me to summit without him. As soon as I started to head back down to him I saw him making the final approach; he had decided he couldn't climb that high and not get to the top of Arizona. It was nice to see a few pockets of snow in the middle of summer, but the flies were horrible. All in all great climb; my highest altitude yet.

LoriOLinIdeal Hiking in February this year!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 25, 2006


I was a bit discouraged thinking that I would be in Arizona and not be able to hit the highpoint because it was February. The description of the mountain on summitpost, makes one think that nobody climbs it in the winter without crampons. Well, I guess I got lucky, because it was a beautiful February day and a beautiful hike! This was my 5th highpoint. (Fl,Co,La,Ar,Az)

Great hike with great friends in unseasonably warm conditions. There was very little snow on the day after Christmas and it was a bit of a disapointment. However, it was chilly at the top, about 30 F, and winds were insane, gusting at almost sixty miles per hour. After getting back down to the saddle though we were okay. Enjoy.

Fun and easy snow climb through a beautiful forest leads to a nice ridgeline - a little too close to the Ski resort for my liking, but still nice. We ran the Grand Canyon Rim to Rim 2 days before this.

Climbed Boundary Peak, and Mount Whitney, the same week. Stayed in Flagstaff on Saturday, and had breakfast at "The Place" at 5:00 AM and started climbing Sunday morning at 6:00 AM. Had a great hike through the forest. It had snowed the night before and the trail was dusted with snow. Reached the summit with Ed and Joe and spent about an hour on top. Seen a lot of other hikers. Just about every hiker had a dog along with them. Seemed strange to me. On the way down we looked for the old airplane that had crashed, but did not go far enough back to find it. We needed time to drive back to Vegas to fly home on Monday morning. It was a great way to end the week and a beautiful climb since the aspens were bright yellow. HP #5.
