The Nipple GR:004689 

elevation: 2,485 m. height gain: 765 m.
area: Golden,BC map 82 N/2-3

Park at the 12 Mile Creek trailhead, described in Golden Hikes. Follow the north fork trail and description for the Upper Falls (past Certainty Mine trail junction). Once at the base of the waterfall, head in a south-east direction to the scree slope to gain the saddle, 002688. The summit is minutes away!

Scramble: Very nice day, we are revisiting an area that we so enjoyed with our Winston the Pooch. Pearl Necklace was his last excursion… Miss you Bud…  Lincoln has the same spirit, he wants to go but he is still too young!

For more pictures of the approach to the waterfall, see Springer Peak!
