This daylight savings stuff is for the birds. Haven't missed it. Although I get confused if we're on "west coast" time or "mountain time" when I need to be on a conference call with people back east.

I find I have enough time for harvest with or without the extra hour.

Not sure if i should be resurrecting old threads, but i'm climbing Humphreys Peak on Monday. Planning on wearing boots. Want a very early start (4 or 5 am). Any last minute suggestions?

Nah, short are fine. ;)

Any reason you're planning on starting so early? It isn't monsoon season, so no afternoon storms. You could start at noon if you wanted.

No need to rush! Humphreys is climbable by nearly anyone, but take your time. Especially if you're not well acclimated to the altitude. People zipping by you on the trail probably live in Flagstaff at 7000 feet ASL.

Thanks for everyone's help. I climbed it yesterday. I had no real issues. Of late I've found the best way for me to climb is "slow, steady, short steps".

Any one doing Humphrey should feel free to removed the numerous stupid summit signs the tourons bring up there. I say they detract from the experience, and make it feel like more of a Disney summit.

Right? I was pleased to see that, on my last trip up, someone had wrecked that silly bench, which was mostly gone (though a few pieces remained) from the summit.

It was falling apart on my last summit last August, but I didn't mind it that much. The signs were what I hated.
