Snow Summit  Sucess!

Snow mostly all of the way. Warmer weather made it a posthole nightmare. Much tougher than a summer Ascent but well worth it! Almost no wind at the top with great visibility. Grand Canyon in clear sight.

Enjoyable tough jog up  Sucess!

Jogged up it. Summited in 86 min. Very enjoyable though couldn't see well from top and it did start to rain on the way down.

I like high points and I cannot lie  Sucess!

It took 4.5 hours car to car. My GPS said a total distance of 10.6 miles roundtrip. I was the first on the trail at daybreak (6 AM) and made the summit at 8:30 AM. The views from the summit are OK but the hike itself has no views and is mostly just boring hiking through the forest, until reaching the saddle. Since I was alone on the summit I decided to sit around for 30 minutes (pictures, texts, food, etc - summit stuff). Going down I encounter hoards of folks going up. Some of these hikers appeared not very familiar with hiking: had way too much weight on their backs, too many clothes and left too late (as in 10:30 AM late.) An early start on this hike should be a must. After all, although this is not a technical hike and does not require any special gear, it is a little strenuous, it is over 10 miles and the summit tops at 12,633 ft which is considered high altitude. Moreover the mountain is notorious for unexpected high winds and unexpected weather change after noon.

Only one on the Mountain  Sucess!

It was a cold snowy day, and I had the mountain all to myself. Not a soul in sight.

Agassiz and then Humphreys  Sucess!

Did this in the winter so we could do both 12,000 foot Arizona Peaks in one trip. Met with the rangers and got our permits first for climbing both peaks. Great long day!

Humphrey's  Sucess!

Awesome hike. Got to the top around 9am, first one up. No wind on the summit, at all. Hung out on top for over a half hour in very pleasant conditions. I passed several groups on the way down getting back to the TH a little after 11. The snow packed trail through the forest to the saddle is very easy to walk on and follow right now. Made for a quick trip, which is a good thing as I had a long drive back to SL after words.

Windy Humphrey's  Sucess!

Summitted in 3 hours. Windy and cool on peak with limited views due to clouds/haze.

Three times here when I was finally able to reach the summit. All attempts before were stopped by T-storms and hail storms.

From Snowbowl Trailhead  Sucess!

Nice hike in autumn-forrest. Windy at the ridge to the summit. Strong wind at about 50 - 60 mph at the last 100 ft elevation to the summit. Due to wind-chill in the wind i stay only 5 minutes at the top.
I enjoy the views in the surroundig from this freestanding mountain.
Complete trips needs 6 h.

will always be my favorite  Sucess!

Yet another hike up to Humphrey's Peak. Love the views on the weatherford trail best but the snowbowl side is always great for an impromptu trek.
