Ascent Trip Report

Nancy LaBaff and I hiked Nipple Top and Dial on 7/17/2011. We started from Ausable Parking Lot, pass AMR gate, walked on Lake Road about 2 miles or so. Then, we started ascent toward Colvin/Nipple Top. Pased Elk Path, then, hiking in to Nipple Top. It was up, up and up. We started hike around 7:15 and reached to Nipple Top summit around 11am. Since we were not hungry, we decided to eat lunch to Dial which took about a bit less than an hour from Nipple Top summit.
After eating lunch at Dial, we hiked to Bear Den Mtn, then, Noonmark shoulder, continued to hike down. Finally, we reached to Lake Road, passed AMR Gate. We came back to the parking lot at 2:30pm.
