Cockscomb, Humphrey’s Head, and The Face of a Thousand Pitons Professional Review and Guide

"Walk up Roy Gap Road until you see the first buttress of rock on your left. Take a blue-blazed trail that begins at an obvious set of stone steps just across Roy Gap Run. Hike uphill a short way and stay left as the trail splits near the cliff base. Continue up wooden steps and a series of switchbacks to gain a plateau with numerous hemlocks. Here the trail bends right through a brief talus field and then ascends a few 3rd-class moves to a split in the trail. Take the right split to access Luncheon Ledge and routes on Humphrey’s Head and Cockscomb. The left trail leads directly to The Face of a Thousand Pitons."
