Just a bump on the road
by chumley

Overview
Peak 11,673 is a bump on the ridge west of Fremont Peak. It is marked on USGS Topo Maps but features no benchmark or other distinguishing feature. This is an off-trail scramble over rough terrain.


Warning
Note that traveling off-trail above 11,400 feet is illegal in the Kachina Peaks Wilderness ... however, the slopes of Fremont Peak, including Peak 11,673, are exempt from this order.

Hike
This description covers only the half-mile ascent from the Weatherford Trail up to 11,673. Most hikers will make this trip as part of an ascent of Fremont Peak, or other off-trail options. (See Fremont and Doyle Peaks andFremont Peak SE Ridge


From the saddle, make your way up the ridge, passing by a couple of campsites and some historical rusty things. The climb requires a bit of route-finding due to dense tree growth and some class-3 scrambling. Try to stay close to the crest of the ridge as you climb.

The climb reaches the high point of the climb somewhere around 11,690 feet before turning east along the ridge to the lower 11,673 point marked on topo maps. Return the way you came, or continue up to Fremont. Enjoy the views of Flagstaff about 8 miles south.


Camping
Camping is prohibited above 11,400 feet in the Kachina Peaks Wilderness or in the Inner Basin (see map and forest order. Camping is permitted along the Weatherford Trail at both Doyle and Fremont saddles and any elevation on Fremont or Doyle peaks as they are outside of the restriction area. There are no water sources nearby.

To hike
As described, this hike begins where the Weatherford Trail crosses Doyle Saddle (between Agassiz and Fremont peaks, incorrectly labeled on some maps). You can get to this point via the Inner Basin Trail or the Weatherford Trail from either Schultz Pass or the Humphreys Summit Trail but it will add a minimum of 4.7 miles and 2400 feet of gain.
