Brady Peak is a distinct summit located off the north rim of the Grand Canyon. It can be viewed from several prominent viewpoints off the north rim including Point Imperial, Ariel Point and Roosevelt Point. At 8,132 feet Brady Peak is among the tallest of the Grand Canyon summits.
As with many Grand Canyon approaches, this approach is not for the faint of heart. In fact, I would go as far as to say this approach represents some of the worst bushwhacking I have done in the Grand Canyon. The majority of the approach is extremely overgrown with New Mexican Locust and is nearly impassible in spots, with little sign of even the faintest game trail. To begin this heinous approach, one should park at the Komo Point Trailhead and walk north along the Cape Royal Road. From the road, one should eventually begin walking cross country in a northeasterly direction. until reaching the tops of some heavily vegetated valleys. There are a few options to choose from, but as long as you are going down you will end up on the approach route. As you near the end of these valleys you will come to some impassable drop offs. From here is is necessary to fix a line and rap down to the base of the Coconino. You will need to ascend this line later to get back up to the north rim. The valley approach we chose required a 70 foot fixed line and an approximately 15 foot climb that had to be completed on lead on the way out. Hug the base of the Coconino until you reach the cruiser Hermit Shale portion of the approach and make your way to the base of Brady.
