Alpine Scramble - Humpback Mountain

Pretty after-hours trip on 9/27/2017.

  • Road suitable for all vehicles
  • There were something like a dozen cars at the lower spur road going off the Hansen Creek road.  I'm quite curious what they were all doing; it clearly wasn't Humpback as we saw only one other party, who like us started from the upper spur.

Hi Richard, last time I did this trip we ran into a group of folks who were on their way to collect quartz. Perhaps those cars belonged to folks on a similar mission.

Richard, when we were there earlier this summer, we met a number of people who were quarrying crystals from mines there. I wonder if the people in the cars you saw were also doing that.
