Ascent Trip Report

A P2K of modest stature, Bradley is more of a massive hill than an alpine peak. Its rolling, sage-covered summit does boast phenomenal views of the Snake River, Gros Ventre, Teton, Wyoming, and Salt River ranges. The summitpost page for this peak is quite helpful for finding the start of the route- for a peak so conspicuous from several roads, it's surprising there's really only one reasonable starting point for the climb. Once on the ridge, it's difficult to follow the social trail- some bushwhacking can be expected, but the route itself is hard to lose. Bradley is a nice spot if you're seeking solitude- it probably rarely gets climbed except by those seeking prominence peaks. Overall I'd recommend it, though it's admittedly far from being one of Greater Yellowstone's most spectacular peaks.
