2skinnersHP #3 Humphrey's Peak Trail  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 17, 2007
Started at 6am and met with thunder and lightning once I was off of the ridgeline coming down the mountain. Made me a little nervous at times.

June 27th, 2007

Climbed again with friends from work. Much better weather this time around. Great views again. Just happened to top out on Arizona's highpoint on my 2 year anniversary with summitpost.

The edge

What a trip that was...!!
With my longtime friend Eric...
We flew to Phoenix, rented a car, drove to Flagstaff;
The gate was clodes at the TH because they had received new snow... We camped at the base... woke up the next morning and went for it from the bottom near the road...
It was crazy... we got to the top at 16:03... just three minutes shy of our turn around time...
We almost got caught in an avalanche high up near Agassiz...

hockeymanSolo trip  Sucess!


A trip I made a long time ago. Was living in Tempe at the time. Drove up, camped solo, had coyote problems. Summitted the next day - no issues. Nice day.

Awesome peak. I did this peak on my way from Albuquerque to LA. Took half a day. Not bad. I had to pry the summit register out of the ice. I was the first to sign in a while.

weeds19Group hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 30, 2001


A group of three of us headed over from ABQ and camped near the trailhead before our hike the next day. The trail was crowded and there was quite a cross-section of America represented on the mountain. The summit had a huge amount of swarming bugs so we spent very little time there before heading down.

cdogAgassiz to Humphreys traverse  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 27, 2005


left early and climbed straight up the ski lift to the Agassiz summit. Early 2005 had LOTS of snow (maybe 300% normal), so this felt like a true winter hike.
Traversed over to Humphreys and descended straight down the skiers right side of the snowbowl.

Date Climbed: May 8, 2006


Started at 7am and found the going pretty quick. Summitted at around 9am. Met a couple of ladies up on the summit and we cowered around the shelters as 60 mph winds blew all around us. Good times.

What a fine trail. I moved to Flagstaff on the 19th and summited this on 21st. It was such a thrill. There was dutch hiker who was practically running up this thing. Pretty amazing. This peak is 12633 feet.

osatrikLate Fall Summit  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 30, 2006


Dan L and I climbed in a dusting of a few inches of snow, which was largely gone a week later when we came out of our 5 day trip through the Grand Canyon. Weather was perfect. We only saw three others on the trail, although none of them were summiting. Humphreys was number 42 of my 49 state high points, and the first new SHP I'd climbed in over twelve years. This marked the beginning of the end of my quest, which was completed in June 2009, nearly 24 after visiting my first SHP.

Lots of people on the mountain. Surprisingly, no one got blown off! Good views of the Grand Canyon.

woodstriderA Perfect Day On Humphreys Peak  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 24, 2006


After seriously considering going up the Abineau Canyon approach, this unmitagated peak-bagger opted for the quickest way up, starting from the Snow Bowl Lodge. The most popular approach, I saw many people and dogs on this trail. About 6 years ago a friend and I tried for this high point but were unable to hike it as the area was closed due to a forest fire here at that time, we could see the smoke from the south rim of the Grand Canyon.
Now as I hiked up above tree line I could look over to the Grand Canyon and see smoke from a fire there. Ironic.
I got a very late start and finished the last mile in the dark. It had been a perfect day to be out on the peak. Walk in Beauty.

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.

Date Climbed: May 24, 2006


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.

CornvallisA little wind  Sucess!


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!
