2x. Discovered the tunnel on the descent after making the spicy traverse from the rap anchor. Good fun with dad.

Climbed with the NorCal peak hikers. A few in the group summited but most chose not to risk a 4th class climb without helmets. Still need to come back and nail this one.

Started around the corner from the standard route, went up some very loose 4th class, through a tunnel, and made a short traverse to the rap station. Broke a foot hold at one point and about ripped my arm out of the socket catching the fall. The chimney was great fun. Rapped down the standard route. Looked a lot easier and significantly more solid than my route.

Fun stuff, I guess I can't really tell the difference between 4th class and low fifth. I trundled a bunch of loose stuff off the main route since I was soloing, seems I was the first to climb it since winter. The chimney portion is pretty solid rock, not scary at all, just really fun. Downclimbing seemed like a safer alternative to the rap, loose rock being the main concern and all.

Couldn't see a thing from the summit, I hiked from the third gate up markleeville peak and over to jeff davis, snowed/sleeted/rained the entire time.

All in all, a cool peak that doesn't see a lot of action. I think the volcanic peaks between carson and ebbets are my favorite peaks in the Northern Sierra Region.

Nice easy little peak. Summitted just before dark and saw the sunset. It was quite cold and windy, but a fantastic view. Accidentally left a bunch of slings sitting near the belay rock. Bummer.

Fun climbing. Definitely airy. Holds weren't quite as loose as they looked. The chimney was cool. Together with Markleeville Peak.

This was one of our better winter outings. Cold & windy, but highly enjoyable. Trip Report

Climbed The Nipple, Jeff Davis, and Markleeville on an ambitious and surprisingly successful snowshoe outing out of Red Lake with Bob. Glad we brought a short rope to rappel. Ours was the first winter ascent recorded in the register, which dated back to 1985. Cool peak.
