Alpine Scramble - Humpback Mountain

We scrambled Humpback after hours.

  • Road suitable for all vehicles
  • No problems.

We gained 2,200' in 4 1/2 hours.  Despite fog in the upper stretches and some slippery  moist talus it was a most enjoyable, and quite beautiful, trip.  Lynn found a report evaluating area for wilderness status, describing the area as a roadless island close unusual so near to an urban area.  The upper stretches turn out to be old growth forest with treess 200-700 years old.
