Date Climbed: May 9, 2010

Went up the Dutchman in prime snow conditions. VERY windy up top, but great views, and the summit wind shelter provided a break from the wind. State highpoint #9.

Great morning, to the windy windy summit via the Dutchman glade. Summit had consistent winds over 50 mph, couldn't stand up! Great views, see the north rim of the grand canyon. State HP #5

Started at the Snowbowl around 7am. The trail was really well broken in, but once we reached the basalt scree slope, the trail disappeared and headed straight up the scree slope (covered with snow). Saw the B-24 bomber along the ridge up to Hupmhreys. We made it Humphreys around 1pm and had the summit to ourselves. We then we down the ridge towards the saddle and camped just above the saddle to Agassiz. We did Agassiz the next day.

Snowshoe-ed up in fresh powder (fought hard in a few spots) to gain the perfect summit ridge. Beautiful weather and a deserted summit were a nice change as compared to my hurricane-thwarted attempt last Nov. Got a late start (not due to drinking!) and summitted late in the day but it made for some awesome pictures. Unbelievable views!

Hiked with Rafiki up this gently sloped mountain for my 8th state high point. In the last final yards to the summit we encountered incredibly ferocious winds, at least 80 mph. The wind chill made it feel like it was 20 below.

Blissful walk past huge aspen and a spectacular view. First high mountain I ever summitted.

Me, Kris, Bethany and Brian made an attempt to camp on the summit. However, due to some late classes, we started at 5:30pm and ended up camping on the saddle between Humphreys and Agassiz Peak. It was very very cold, but it was warm in the tent and sleeping bags. Woke up to a frozen camelbak and water bottles. Great sunrise!

Had camped in Painted Desert NP, so only got to the trailhead at the ski valley at 1.30 pm. A lot of people on the mountain, I was the last one to summit. Extremely windy at the top. Great day on Humphreys!

Windy and cold, but a nice hike. It was a bit hazy, but there was still a decent view of the north rim.

We left at 2:00 a.m. and reached the summit in time to see the sunrise. It was a great view and nobody was there! On the way down we passed 75+ people. I recommend the early start...

Bark EaterA "10" Day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 9, 2009

Bark Eater

On the drive in there was a herd of about 50 elk, just off the highway. Left the Humphrey's Peak trail head at 5:45 AM and was on the summit by 8:15. Visibility was probably 100 miles with cool temperatures and light winds. I enjoyed sharing the top with Dawn and dog Junior before having 30 minutes of solo time for contemplation of the amazing scenery. On the way back down I counted 130 people and 11 dogs ascending. One more reason besides lightning avoidance to get an early start!

My son's first time above 10,000 feet. A pleasant day, until thunder kicked in around 10:00 a.m. We hoofed it down and got into our car just seconds after we started getting pelted by hail.

My 10yo son and I hiked this, his first of 3 state highpoints in 6 days (also NM and CO). We got to the saddle and had to descend and wait out some threatening thunderclouds. Then we went back up and bagged that peak.

Took the train from LA to Flagstaff, rented a car and climbed the highest peak in Arizona. A great weekend. Windy on top.

It's poor judgement to climb a mountain in the late afternoon with dead batteries in ones headlamp. Joe fortunately had a working lamp but I was still stumbling most of the way down. The moon and the stars were obscured by the towering pines. By the way... the sunset from the peak was spec-freezing-tacular!

Dartmouth Hiker2nd time from PHX  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 5, 2009

Dartmouth Hiker

Climbed again with my mother, this time we both summitted. Cool-to-warm temps, nicely breezy, partly cloudy and hazy all day but no t-storms ever developed. Dealt with the altitude a bit better this time, though I still had a headache on the way down. Seeing a few patches of snow on the upper reaches of Humphreys and Agassiz really cheered me up!
