Highlights

  • Humboldt Peak is a Colorado 14er in the Sangre de Cristo Range.
  • It is the least challenging climb of the Crestone group of fourteeners, which include Crestone Peak, Crestone Needle, and Kit Carson Peak.
  • Despite the rather impressive north face of Humboldt Peak, the standard route on the peak is not much more than a hike along a decent trail with some minor rock scrambling (Class 2) near the summit.
