Tina Bowman placed a register and ammo box in 2016. Appx 20 parties signed in 2017. I was the first for 2018
Easy hike from Humphreys basin. Outstanding views all the way to Banner / Ritter, Seven Gables, etc.
Beautiful hike across Humphreys Basin. Couldn't get enough of that, so added on Four Gables afterwards making for a pretty long dayhike.
day hike in a windy day, thunderstorm is approaching. also bagged Four Gables same day.
unfortunately, the summit register and lid of the register box are gone...
We'd planned to blow right by here the day before, but storms forced us to camp at Paris Lake. While passing time pouring over maps, I realized that this guy could offer some potentially outstanding views of the area for relatively little effort. When it was clear in the morning, I didn't hesitate to head that way. Of course I was handsomely rewarded for my decision at upon reaching the summit.
A nice peak to run up while I was cruising from one side of the pass to the other on a backpacking trip. A rather short and fun scramble to the top with superb views in all directions!
Climbed three times over the years when camped in Humphreys basin. Easy climb to fantastic views of the area
Alt Sierra Challenge 2013 peak. Started with the Challenge gang but broke off at Piute pass when they headed to Keyhole Plateau. Not the rest day I was expecting but still a great walk across Humphrey's Basin. Pictures & Story
From Knob Lake, I ascended straight up, so that would be SE face. Started with scree but eventually became super fun Class 2 boulder jumping. Pretty fun for a quickie! Alpine start gave me a grand view of sunrise across the basin while climbing.
An early-season trail run. Running across Humphreys Basin is pure joy. Trip report
Day 3 of SC 2005. Set a negative SC record taking 23 hr 55 min to complete this climb. Ouch!
Part of the 2007 Sierra Challenge, I was off doing this by myself while most of the others headed to Goethe. Trip Report
Climbed during a stormy weekend from Piute Pass along with Mount Humphreys the next day. Set up camp in the basin and headed over to Pilot Knob the first afternoon.
Was stopped for about 45 minutes en route crossing the basin, then again at the saddle laying under a boulder for three hours waiting out the rain and lightning. Was worth the wait. Similar experiences with rain and hail the next two days.
