Gotta disagree with you here:

The view from this summit is one of the finest in the land. Peaks in CO, even ones with more prominence (like Elbert) don't offer the expansive, endless 360 degree views that peaks like Humphreys can.
I have been up Humphreys three times in the spring via the standard (2x) and Dutchman Route. If there's enough snow for snowshoes, I'd go Dutchman. It's more direct and has really cool airplane wreckage to check out. However, the standard route may be more packed down and easier to follow, if that's what you're looking for. Agassiz is open when snow covered.
You could make a loop out of it by doing both routes.
You can also check out Arizona Hikers and hikearizona.com for beta.
The Dutchman page above and the Snow Bowl website have plenty of the info you ask for, OP.
BTW, does anyone know if "Humphrey" on SP is Flag denizen jhodlof, seen here below me on Hesperus, who used to frequent this site? I lost touch with him a couple years ago, but he was on about 67 summits of Humphreys then... Name changes on SP aren't unheard of, as Barry Raven can attest.

Dude, what bastard made you climb an unranked peak?
