Mt. Humphreys (13,986 ft.) dominates the Bishop sky line and has many great climbs to the summit, none of which are “easy”. One of my favorite areas is the Humphreys basin on the backside of the mountain that offers many great routes to the top. Thanks to Dan, Dennis, Ken, and Sierra Mountaineering International for a great trip!
This weeks itinerary:
Failed summit attempt on Middle Palisade in a day, due to rain, hail, and lightening = exciting.
Mt. Humphreys summit success with three great guys. 14 feet shy of 14,000 feet.
Mt. Emerson summit success with John. A super fun 5.4 with about 2500 feet of climbing and an exposed ridge climb!
Topped it all of with a a great 5.10b 6 pitch climb near Lundy Canyon for another great day with John!
Off to the East Buttress on Mt. Whitney in two days, let the good times roll!
