I've had the pleasure of communicating semi-regularly with the keeper of this page. He is the devoted type who will keep it updated as needed and I would expect nothing less than a very well done page for this outstanding mountain. Good job Kane!
Very nice site.
What an extremely well written page! This is probably the best page I have ever found here on SP, amazing work!
The only thing i don't like is the flag.
Ha Ha Ha
Thanks for the nice comments. I really had to spend a lot of time and effort fixing up this page after the last maintainer. It was pitiful. : )
Who might that be, Ericdix?
Great page. Well done, a 5 star effort if I've ever seen one.
Thank you for the comments and the 5-star vote. :)
Mathias, Thanks for your vote. I checked the HTML in the overview and couldn't find any problems. However, I did find a bad link in the Red Tape section. Thanks.
Very nice Alan, I like the way you give credit where credit is due. Shit, when I did it, I wish I would of read Downey's east ridge route, since I didn't have a 4wd.
Thanks for the vote. I almost did the east ridge route, but opted instead for the standard route. The road is definitely the crux of a South Colony trip.
Thanks for looking that info on how Humboldt got it's name. My book is packed away (like everything else). I put it on the main page.
Hey, is that you rock climbing on your profile page? I didn't know you rock climbed. Where was that taken and what was the route?
No problem, there was quite a bit of info on the history of Humboldt, at least more than some of the other fourteeners in the state.
Yes, I enrolled in a class that teaches Basic Mountaineering skills and rock climbing is part of the curriculum. Jim (colonelpyat) took the image and I really don't know if the route in the image has a name. A friend told me about it. It's a fifty foot top rope and is around 5.4ish. I’ve been going out the past month and climbing around Clear Creek Canyon, no sport routes yet, just top ropes. Did my first crack last weekend and was a 5.6. After two times up that my forearms were through for the day. I really like it.
You must have got a late start. :-)
Thanks for the vote and the comments.
Nice page, thorough and well organized.
I think there is a brief history in the Borneman book. If you have the book and find it, submit it in the overview section and I will add it to the main page. I would look myself but my book is packed away while we're moving.
Thanks for the vote.
