Ascent Trip Report

We used Dennis Poulin's trip report, although we skipped the scramble up The Nipple. The first part of the hike is a jeep trail/ATV track that is not shown on the map. A bit of brush across the base of the gully leads to more open brush on the north side.

The drive in was definitely high clearance and 4WD, with a few muddy patches. Had we tried to drive farther, I don't think my 4Runner would have made it to a higher spot where it was safe to park or turn around, so the bottom of the slope was just fine. The road coming over the pass looked decent, so it might be worth checking out the approach from the north up Spring Gulch and past Cooleys Cabin, but we did not do so and cannot say if it would have worked more easily.
