Did you need crampons or snow shoes/ice axe?
I'm looking to climb it tommorrow.
be ready for high winds at summit
Good hike, winds were high and cold. Awesome view from the top.
stayed in a tent halfway up and summitted the next morning.
Climber Mt. Humphrey's trail right after hiking Rim 2 River and back in the canyon that morning.
Snow bowl route was nice. It was a long hike and t- shirt weather on top. False summits got a bit old but enjoyed it. Arizona gave us an A+ sunset that evening.
Ascended Humphreys with Mike, Mark and Rick. Three of us had splitboards and one slowshoer. Weather on top was amazing, low 40s with very minimal wind. Had the summit all to ourselves with great views of the GC North Rim. Splitboard descent was very challenging in highly variable conditions. A phenomenal trip to the top of AZ!
We left camp at the Grand Canyon before sunrise and got on the trail just after 8, hoping to avoid afternoon storms. We encountered a little rain and lots of wind and clouds, even a bit of sleet on the summit. There was no view due to the clouds. We heard some thunder on the way down the ridge, but it never got close. It was a fun hike and we met lots of nice people along the way and enjoyed great beer at a brewpub in Flagstaff afterward.

I really dig Flagstaff/Sedona... mellow half-day hike... spent an hour on the summit... interesting views... red rock navajo nation, north rim of the grand canyon, endless yellow pine country... the volcanic area feels like oregon... brought cody on a leash the whole way
A nice hike on a beautiful fall afternoon.
Climbed after driving down from Salt Lake, which made for a long day. Heard some ominous thunder early in the climb, but things cleared up pretty nicely by the time we reached timberline.
Brrrrr. Prepare for the cold wind on top. Been back in May 2008.
My second state high point! Good hike through thick woods for most of the way, I saw several elk and deer. Once I got out of the trees and into the rocks the wind really picked up and by the time I was nearing the summit it was so windy I couldn't even stand. I made it to the summit by running and ducking behind rocks and holding on to my hat. 5 hours round trip.
Hiked up with a great group of Highpointers from all over the US. Wind picked up to 50 or 60 mph on the summit. Had to walk crab style facing the wind.
Moogie737 and I made it to the top after starting from the ski trailhead near sunrise. Nice trail, beautiful colors, cool temps, and some hoar frost. I was underprepared [I had planned for Phoenix weather] and was only saved by the hair on my legs! What a beautiful mountain!
Beautify day to climb. Got an early start and was back at my car before 1.
Attempted the peak in late spring but didn't realize that their would still be snow at the top. Decided that without crampons it would be to dangerous.
First person to summit that morning, and first one down... No thunderstorms encountered above treeline, although some could be seen in the distance and three very minor hailstorms quickly passed while traversing the false summits. Some parts of the trail were a little rockier or steeper than I originally imagined, but overall this is a great trail, good workout, and very scenic hike!!! Highly recommended!!! State Highpoint #32!!!
Back in '69 we hitched a ride on the ski lift.
More legitimate ascents were in 8-16-1991 when we hiked Molly
up in a child carrier, and 9-4-1999 when the whole
family hiked up.
