I am thinking of doing Humphreys with a friend this may-ish. How far were you able to get in on the roads to the trail head last year? We have had a lot more snow this year I think. I am assuming the Buttermilks are all melted out by then. Thanks :)
last year we were able to get waaaaaaay up there, i think to about 9600-10,000 feet if my altimeter was dead on. The buttermilks were melted out pretty low this year already, but that was before this storm came through. Which route were you guys thinking of doing? No matter which one it is, make SURE you have a HIGH clearance vehicle. After the boulders end, it gets buckwild!
Thanks, granjero took the photo, so photo credits to him for an outstanding shot. I have an axe but am plunging it in that sticky icky (snow). I really want to go back to this mountain and climb the East Arete, sweet line! Thanks for the comment
"Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan "press on" has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race."
