Description

Dingleberry... why this peak was dubbed such an unflattering name is beyond me. Perhaps the approach was so off-putting, it displeased even its first ascentionist. The peak is one of the more massive peaks of the "Central Organs" peaks, dwarfing Wildcat and the sharp spires to the north, and only slightly lower than the Wedge to the south. despite its bulk, the peak is not as attractive as its neighbors, being broken up into a series of buttresses and "cirques". When approaching from the west, the true summit is often hidden behind these buttresses possibly leading to route confusion.

While Dingleberry has relatively few published routes, it has enormous potential for climbers wishing to make the effort of a long and arduous approach.

Getting There

The standard route (3rd class) is approached from the West via the Modoc mine rd. Ascend Wohlt's Welt (see Wildcat approach description)and traverse towards the Wildcat gully. Which gully you ascend depends on which route you are aiming for. Expect the approach to involve a degree of bushwhacking and rock-scrambling, as well as the constant battling with spiky desert plants.
