  • Technical 3, Strenuous 3
  • Mileage: 7.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 2,300 ft
8:00 am at High Point Way (Exit 20 on I-90)
The standard approach to Humpback Mtn is from Exit 47 on I-90, and the route follows the NW ridge. The big question is whether we will have to park right off I-90, given the highly uncertain snow/weather/road conditions. If not, it adds an extra 2 miles of road walk each way but no real difference in elevation gain. Most of the route is in forest but the summit should have views (if views are to be had). We’ll see what the weather gods have in store for us in the course of the next week.
