Details

From downtown Flagstaff this is the largest peak that you can see on the left side of the mountains to the north of town, Humpreys is hidden behind it.  This peak has alot of different lines coming from its summit in all directions.  Its most classic line is the Monti Vista chute that is visible from Flagstaff.  The ski resort is also built on the west ridge of Agassiz allowing for easy access.
