apachedinoNorthwest route. Fun routefinding!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 3, 2013

Parked between Grand Wash TH and the scenic road. Didn't have a topo or a route description, but I spied what appeared to be a break int he cliff bands in in a north facing notch closest to the large western cliff bands. Lots of route finding fun, but it is only 3rd class if you look for it. 4th to 5th otherwise. Summited many small cliffbands and then entered a narrow forested drainage, summited the plateau and saw the Nipple for the 1st time. It had rained heavily recently or maybe winter erased them, but I didn't see any other footprints, however I am pretty sure others have used this route though it is not the one Kelsey describes. Fantastic views! The top of the nipple was a fun scramble as well.

Climbed via Bear Canyon. No cairns and very little trail after the initial climb out of Grand Wash. May have missed a turn somewhere, but made it up anyway. Great, fun climb. Lots of variety.

Part of our journey from Zion to Moab. This Fruita campsite is really nice. Tons of deer. All the free produce you can pick and eat while there. That is a pretty cool feature. I scoped out at least one decent bolted climbing route. Not much technical stuff here, but not very crowed either. Ferns Nipple was fun. I give it 5 stars.
