TheWolfIsLooseNippletop Slide to Dial  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 9, 2014


We took the Nippletop Slide and looped over to Dial. Conditions were sub-optimal to say the least. This made for a tricky, and at points, scary ascent of the Nippletop Slide, as it was icy enough for need an ax, but the ice was not thick enough to get a good bite with the axes. Still, we made it without incident and had a fantastic weekend!

Hiked up Lake Road and took the Gill Brook trail, summited Nippletop Mt first, then Dial Mt and Bear Den on my way down. Great day to be out, lots of people on the trail too. Great views from the two boulders at the summit, really neat looking down into Elk Pass to Elk Lake, Dix Mt slides, and of course the Great Range.

Hiked Nippletop 4620' in the Colvin Range during a two day backpacking trip staying both nights at the Indian Pass campsite. Steep but enjoyable hike with great, semi-clear sunny weather the entire weekend. A few false summits later and we found ourselves at the true summit overlooking Ausable lake with Mount Colvin staring us in the face. Proceeded down the same trail we took up and then headed towards Colvin.

A wonderful hike, that was made interesting by the fact I had to carry a friend 6.5 miles down on my back! Totally worth it!

Did the loop backwards starting with Bear Den, Dial, to Nippletop. Unexpected snow caused no visibility, however the Elk Pass hike down was beautiful. Many fantastic singing birds around the summit of Nippletop, something I've never seen before!

Came up the H.G. Leach trail and back down Elk Pass. Met some very friendly hikers on top of Nippletop whom we shared great views with looking towards the Great Range.

Climbed Leach Trail and went down through Elk Pass. Nice winter hike! about 1 foot of snow at higher elevations. Crampons are needed if you go up from Elk pass.

Climbed with Dial via the H. G. Leach Trail from the Ausable Club. Lots of raspberries along the trail. Amazing views of the Great Range from the summit. During the descent we hiked over to Indian Head. The view over Ausable Lake was unsurpassed.

Climbed with Paul on a relatively mild day. Cloudy with snow showers, but spectacular views of the Great Range from the top. Gray skies mixed with blue skies made for an interesting range of color. Neat peak! Headed to Dial from here. 16/46

A great day in the woods. Started out with nice fall foliage, and topped out in about 10 inches of snow. Beautiful views of the Great Range.
