Humboldt is an easy peak to climb in an area of the Sangre de Cristo Range where there are many difficult fourteeners. The standard approach is by hiking or driving up a long four-wheel-drive road to the South Colony Lakes Trailhead, and then following a Colorado Fourteener Iniative Trail to Humboldt's west ridge. The view of Crestone Needle and Crestone Peak is stunning.
