Vantage Point: South west ridge

Caption: Humphreys Peak

PhotoDescr: Ironically, among five states highest peaks that we have climbed so far, this was the easiest one yet it took the most (three) attempts. Previous fails were due to sudden weather change. The peak is supposed to be so popular that in summer around 100 people could be seen on the trail; this time we never saw anybody - it was a clear sunny calm winter midweek day. In winter, hiking this trail requires back-country permit, which can be obtained at the lodge from 9:00 a.m.
