cabWest Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 17, 2015


A little brushy, but not too bad. Nice temperature and no snow. Overall, a pretty forgetable climb.

Eva ,Steve and I took a more direct approach which had its brushy places but once on the ridge had some very nice climbing.

jdmorehouseBushwack  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 7, 2013


We went up the wash to the saddle, but over shot it somehow and ended up on the bushwack ridge from hell. We eventually made the main ridge line and it was easy going after that. Steep, but free of brush. I saw Eric Tipton's entry in the register, and several other of the usual suspects there. Great fun. We went down the "right" way and only hit brush between the wash and the old road. (Party of three from LVMC). We had climbed Perkins earlier in the day.

Some of the roughest brush I've ever done.Got away from the standard route which was a big mistake.
Plenty of snow on the last 600 ft.

fedakNorth Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 16, 2011


Ended up on the ridge to the north of the peak rather than the standard DPS approach. This made for a longer and more tedious day than was probably necessary. (Descended via the gully below this ridge- which was also long and tedious)

Pics and commentary are here.

surgentBrushy, warm and breezy climb  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 2, 2011


Climbed with Adam Helman following standard route. Warm but breezy weather, and very brushy. Not difficult, but slow-going with the crud underneath (probably better in the dead of winter). Great summit, great views! Snake count: 1.

Easier than expected, not so brushy as advertised. Hazy views that day though. Trip Report

Date Climbed: Jun 27, 2009


I've always wanted to try one of these in the dead of summer. Carried over a gallon of water and needed most of it! The route is pretty straight-forward and the brush is not bad by AZ standards. The views were ridiculously good the whole day. Loved the pine forest on top - great day.

Up standard DPS route. Memorable day for Columbia disaster,
which darkened completion of AZ 2K project.
Lots of DPSers get up this peak.

MoapaPkNicer than expected  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 5, 2006


Took the normal DPS route. Brush wasn't that bad (by Adirondack standards), much better than on Kingston. The pictures here so far don't do the mountain justice -- very pleasant, and the views to S and W are quite nice.

Last 1.5 miles of "2WD" road have deteriorated quite a bit since the last DPS guide.

cp0915Route Climbed: west ridge Date Climbed: Dec05  Sucess!


Nice granite crags and tall pines near the summit. Despite the cross-country sloggy approach, only 4 1/2 hours car-to-car.

Did Fortification Hill that afternoon.

Eric TiptonRoute Climbed: West Ridge Date Climbed: April 2003  Sucess!
Namesake peak I had to do this one. I climbed this peak with my lifetime partner Elaine, She doesn't usually do this sort of thing but with alot of coersion and outright lies about how easy the trail would be I convinced her she would have the time of her life doing this peak. After several hours of slogging our way thru cholla and brush, up steep trailess slopes, minor route deviations, and the constant threat of seeing a snake we made the summit of Mount Tipton. I apologized about the hike being a bit harder than I had let on ,and she replied " Its always hard when you mount the Tipton" Great trip, Eric Tipton.
