Thanks Aaron! I love that area. I went with Misha (Mlog) and it was a semi-epic!

Great photo! Now you have to climb the East Arete to experience a semi - epic on the other side!

Thanks Dean! Mt. Humphreys is a very imposing mountain. Humphreys Basin, where Mt. Humphreys is located, is quite pretty.

Do folks climb this ridge much? It ascends from right to left toward the top and casts a shadow on the more easterly part of the mtn.

I had a chance to look up the route you mention. I believe it is the Hutchinson Route, and I don't think it is climbed very often. It is rated I, 5.4, and was the first route climbed on Mt. Huumphreys, back in 1904.

That's a fine route and one I climbed a month after I learned roped climbing in Yosemite Valley ( in 1976 ). In fact, I was working in the Valley at the time and we went here and climbed it as a way to get away from Yosemite and the tourons on a weekend! The 5.4 is on the summit cone pitch and is the same as the finish for the East Arete - very cool and fun!

You can study the 5.4 pitch on my video David. If you recall we got great footage of that crux part of the climb on my " best of " mountaineering dvd!

Truly a beautiful picture. Craig, where did you work (in Yosemite)in '76? I worked in Toulumne that summer. I tried to think of tourists as pilgrims, at that time.

I was a dishwasher in Curry Village. That wasn't as bad as it seems - when I had a split shift, I could climb between 10 - 5 , and taking 180 degree F. plates off the giant Hobart dishwashing machine without gloves on killed my nerve endings in my fingers, allowing fingertip face moves with no pain!!

Hadn't seen this one before, Dave- great photo- the colors, the contrast, + just the peak itself really make the shot!
