Mt. Humphreys (13,986 ft.)

The Southwest Slope and Northwest Face are class 4. Most of this route is class 2, with about 100 feet of easy class 4 just below the summit. Leave the Piute Pass Trail at the pass, heading NNE towards Humphreys Lakes and Mt. Humphreys. Pass the highest of the lakes on the east side, gaining Mt. Humphreys' southwest slope. Climb the scree slopes until a wide gully is attained that slices left and up towards the conspicuous notch northwest of the summit. Follow the gully to the ridge. A class 3 scramble leads up an ever-steepening trough until a vertical wall forces one to the right on narrow ledges (most parties us a rope on this section). A second steep (but short) class 4 section is encountered above this on the arete leading to easier ground just below the summit.
