kaylam87Markleeville and The Nipple  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 22, 2017


I was worried the smoke from the Detwiler Fire might affect the air quality, but we got lucky! It was still pretty clear and we had great views all around. We hiked Markleeville first. After summiting Markleeville, we drove down the road a little bit to meet up with the PCT. We took it north a couple miles and then hoofed it off trail to get to the summit of The Nipple. There were some cool cliffs and rocks near the top, but nothing scary. We took some photos and signed the register before booking it back down.

Date Climbed: Aug 30, 2014
Pretty easy hike up the unsigned PCT junction on Blue Lakes Road - did Markleeville first but didn't even start that one until 2:30 and yet finished both peaks before sunset. 2 of the easier OGUL's to be sure. Trip report is HERE.

Scrambled straight up the face with a buddy. I was 13 and it was the highest elevation I'd reached in my life. Reaching the top and taking in the view lit the fuse to get into technical climbing a few years later.

Climbed this peak along with Jeff Davis and Markleeville Peak on the same day. It's a good peak with a good name.
