12,633 Feet? Let's Do It!

Post by Hippy » Apr 19 2012 12:19 pm

Monday, July 30th 2012
We will be leading a very easy going paced hike up to the summit of The Tallest Mountain In Arizona.
It is roughly a 10 mile hike (that's round trip don't worry!)

Within those 5 miles to the summit we will gain 3300 feet of elevation, the trail head starts around 9300 feet and we will top out at 12,633...

This hike is being led by Haley & Vince (HippyHaley & GOYAAH), so there is the option of hiking at a slower(H) or faster(V) pace so no worries about being too slow or being bored (if you're a faster hiker!)
This is a great opportunity to go on a challenging hike with friends and take in the beautiful scenery at your own pace!


We will be leaving Sunday July 29th for the drive out to flagstaff, we will car or tent camp and set out on the hike long before the sun rises!
Leaving the trail head this early gives the slower paced hikers PLENTY of time to summit the Mountain and NO RUSH to get back down!
This scheduling will also leave us with the rest of monday (July 30th) to rest and relax in the happy little city of Flagstaff :)

Depending on how many people are attending there is (as always) the carpooling/caravan options.
If you'd like to drive please opt to take fellow hikers with you to save on fuel and keep our air cleaner :)
As of now there will be 3 seats open in our Subaru, any takers?

The link below is details on the hike.

I'm planning to be on the trail at some point that day, so I'll stay under interested. Whether or not I'll be with the early-birds is another story. :zzz:

Couldn't help but notice the list of folks interested in this. What is it about Humphrey that garners so much interest, but so few seem to commit to it?
Rocks!!

Look for us, we'll probably be wearing green (me) and orange (GOYAAH) and if you see some maniac doing cartwheels at the summit... :guilty:

Don't think I'm going to make this one. I was going to drive up tomorrow night, but I won't have a car. Might be up there on Tuesday, for what it's worth.

@Tough_Boots let's all try for it and see what we can do, for next summer, i think june or july would best, we are planning our Supai trip for May next year instead of June also! So that even will be posted in a month :lol:
for real though, let's get Whitney in the planning stages! I know Vince is in and my Subaru can fit 5 people and loads of gear easy, let's do it.
