Youngest on the summit  Sucess!

My wife and I, along with my 16 month old daughter, made it to the summit. It was a great hike. Took us 4 hours to summit and once we got to the top...a storm passed over and had to book it to the saddle. We were told by a native hiker of Humphrey's, that he thinks our daughter was the youngest to summit...would like to see if that is true. As we were coming down we met a man that was 77 years old, he was determined to summit for the last time in his life. Might the youngest and the oldest summit the same day?!

HP #29  Sucess!

After a week of hiking on a bum leg the ascent was fine. A little storm scare on the last mile, but not enough to turn me back. The decent however on an injured leg took me 3x as long as it should. almost 6 hours in the rain.

Re: HP #29

It wasn't a storm scare, but a major storm and every other hiker turned back. It was the poorest decision you've made while hiking with us on a trip. You shouldn't have been hiking in the first place. Very bad decision making sir, and i had to call you out in this forum!

HP #30  Sucess!

Great Labor Day hike. Slept in the Snow Bowl parking lot, and started the hike at 4:15am. Got to the saddle between Agassiz and Humphrey's right when the sun was about to rise. Tried to make it to the summit before sunrise, but was about 10 minutes behind. I made it to the summit in 1 hour 52 minutes. My dog Niko made it with me. His first state highpoint. Hopefully many more to come for him.

Beautiful solo climb  Sucess!

This was a really enjoyable climb. I felt confident and safe. I kept *my* pace, which is a newly-learned lesson i'll use from now on.

Fun Climb, Great VIews  Sucess!

Headed out to the trailhead from Grand Canyon the night before and slept at the trailhead, got an early start at around 7am, was up and back to my car by 1030. Saw a line of people heading up around 10, glad I started early. Fun hike, lots of uphill. Would like to see what a winter ascent would be like.

three out of four  Sucess!

Enjoyed hiking the Weatherford Trail, well maintained, thanks a million. Spent 6 hours round trip a little more up a little less down. Spectacular 360 view from the summit. As always this climb was dedicated to A.W. who was KIA during GWOT. Adios

North side  Sucess!

Climbed up Abineau trail on the north side, got to the 3 avalanche paths, picked one, and made for the ridge, the descent down the avy path was quite interesting :)

First REAL summit.
Loved it.
Mountaineering is in my future.

Escape from the Heat  Sucess!

Climbed at the onset of a major heat wave so it was a moderate 69 degrees at the summit with no risk of storms or Humphreys' vaunted winds. We went up on a weekday, encountering a number of groups and solo hikers but no big crowds. The first 3/4 of the hike climbs through forest. The whole trail is well-maintained but we and other hikers that day (both young and old) still found the climb long and strenuous. The last mile involves some minor scrambling on sections above the saddle and treeline. The summit affords fine views but the occasion was diminished by clouds of gnats that swarmed you the minute you stood still. Couldn't agree more with HP#9 about Flagstaff.

Ho Hum  Sucess!

A pretty dull hike, and not worth the nearly 300 mile drive to it. All trail, hot and dusty. Crowded even on an early Thursday morning.

Hiking trip from Vegas  Sucess!

A good day climb reserved for winter. About 2-3hrs hike to an extended crater ridgeline offering top of the world views of Arizona, Painted desert, and Grand canyon. The drive north of Flagstaff is short and picturesque, winding through an aspen forrest ending at the upper lodge of the ski resort. Wind might be a factor but there wasn't any. Post holing was mainly through high alpine forest; we were on the hunt for the downed aircraft. Enjoy!

Last day of winter, felt like spring  Sucess!

We enjoyed the last day of winter with this great snow climb and scenic views. One word of caution, don't go up the ski slopes when they are in operation :) The staff don't like that too much.

One of my favorite hikes  Sucess!

There were a bunch of wildfires raging when I hiked this. Made for some spectacular views. Felt lunar on the summit.

...  Sucess!

Great views from the summit. Lots of fires around the mountain. Stayed with friends in Flagstaff and had a great time! Climbed with mebo1126.
