I got a late start but still made really good time up to treeline. From then on the ferocious winds slowed me down. It was good I had all the new protective gear that I do because I needed it.
I originally thought I would hit Humphrey and then go to the north ridge to take in Abineau and Reese Peaks, but I got up there too late to do that. I looked at the route I might take and am not sure I really want to do it anyway. Its steep, and the snow is not really very continuous. Plus, with winds like we had today I would never do it. The snow that was there is rather soft from the last storm. That is, what hasn't blown off the mountain. This winter is unbelievable. We had a lot of snow last month, but the winds have been so fierce this winter that it seems most of the snow above treeline has blown off the mountain.
Instead, I had the right amount of time to go over to Agassiz again. I found that to be a rather foolish move though, as the wind direction was out of of the north-northeast and the hike from the saddle on was horrible. I really regret it.
Incidentally, this was my 30th time summiting Humphrey's Peak
