Emperor Couloir

Fun sustained line.  Max slope angle is about 40 degrees.  The couloir does not drop directly off the summit.  From the summit you can descend north down the ridge to the top of the couloir.

Details

Humphreys Cirque is the obvious east facing bowl on the opposite side from the ski area.  The bowl starts from the summer trail sign at the lowest saddle between Mt. Humpreys and Agassiz Peak up to the summit of Humpreys. This area has a number of lines with the most classic known as Heck Yea.

How to Get There

The easiest way to access the Humprey's Cirque is to leave from the ski area.  Do not follow the summer trail unless there is no snow and you can hike to treeline.  The fastest way is to follow the ski run "Sundance" up the bowl and take the obvious ridge line up out of the bowl to the E/NE.  If you take the lift, follow the skin track across the bowl to the left/northeast.  The goal of both these routes is to end up at the saddle where there is a trail sign.  From here the Humpreys Cirque is directly in front of you.
