What is the reason for the peak being closed to climbing?
only three stars because its technically closed to climbing
I have added the reason why hiking is closed off from the agaaaiz peak page
Thanks for the update
It's not that the page is poorly done. It is illegal to climb this mountain. To entice people to climb it and possibly relate to the land manager that their info was gleaned from SP is a disservice to the site. This was my sole reason for two stars. I did not mean to insult you personally, however, I will not change my vote as I feel two stars is "average," and fitting in this case. Sorry-HD.
2 stars and no explenation? I have added alot of information on this peak and there is not much more that can be said about it. I would like to know why only two stars. I find it as an insult to give less then 3 stars and give no explenation.
Thanks for the reply. 2 stars are deffanatly understood, it just pisses me off that its closed off. I think there reasoning is stupid. The flowers grow all over the mountains and the wildlife does more damage then any human can. I think that If there is a trail to the top then no harm done.
Good basic information. Too bad its illegal. Cheers William
Good page on one of the highest points of Arizona. Looks like nice pine/fir and aspen forest surrounds these pleasant peaks. Author tells you how to get there and when-winter only to avoid stepping on (Senecio franciscanus) a flower found only in these mountains., .
I would remove any suggestions/hints about summer climbs. Suggest a winter ascent only.
Nice photographs and information.
However, you should delete all information relating to the illegal climbing of the mountain. You should instead insist that climbers only climb when there is snow on the ground. When you do this, contact me and I will upgrade my vote.
The information Mr. Cross has posted is inappropriate and advocates illegal activity. If you enjoy hiking in Wilderness and in the San Francisco Peaks please respect not only the protection of the endangered San Francisco Peaks Groundsel, but the cultural sactitiy of the Peaks to 13 Native American Tribes by only hiking on designated trails above 11,400 feet. - Andrew K. Johnson, Wilderness Manager and Forest Protection Officer.
Are you referring to year round climbing on Agassiz as "illegal" as well?
I agree with the Ranger.
Great to see that atleast it can be climbed when snow covered.
