I've been trying to climb this peak for a few years, but just never made the time. After studying the Nipple Peak page, I had a pretty good idea of where I needed to go. FR 488 to 488.1C and follow to the end. Up the slope to the south east ridge. This ridge offered some of the best picture taking of Nipple peak. Along the ridge was fun and not technical. Ascented the peak from around the east side. Good, fun scrambling. Highly enjoyed the views. This climb offered some opportunity for map and compass skills, which I try to take advantage of when I can.
