Ascent Trip ReportThe standard route up Mt. Bradley is up a talus slope on the west side. To approach the peak from the John Muir Trail, follow the trail south along Bubbs Creek and past the campsites along Vidette Meadow. There is a use trail heading into Center Basin which can be followed toward Golden Bear Lake. Past the lake head up the broad slopes toward the main, obvious chute coming down the west slope of the peak. The base of the slope is at UTM: 379845E, 4065370N. From this point scramble up the talus slope which turns into smaller, loose scree and sand as you go higher. Where the chute seems to divide, go right and continue up to the ridge top. On top descend a short distance on the east side and turn left (north). Look for a thirty foot long and two foot wide sloping slot that leads up to the summit area. On top turn left and walk over large rocks to the top. Allow about 3 to 3 1/2hours from the JMT to the summit. I suggest camping at one of three sites along the JMT where there are bear boxes for food storage. Suitable bear boxes along Bubbs Creek are at: 374558E, 4068860N; 375610E, 4068153N; and 377254E, 4066010N. 8/00 RLC
