Description [Edit]

The easiest route to the summit, but still a challenging non-technical outing. The route ascends a weakness in the summit up a series of gullies and steep blocks.

While this route is mostly a strenuous hike, it does offer some nice glimpses of Dingleberry's other faces. It skirts beneath the SW side of the rock walls until close to the ridge-line. the ridge-line at the south end of the Dingleberry cliffs has a small saddle which provides an elegant perch to peer over into the Tulorasa basin, and check out the large steep SE face of the peak.

Location [Edit]

From the top of Wohlt's Welt traverse left towards Wildcat gully. Take either Wildcat gully or the next gully over to the south. These join up as they ascend above a stand-alone rock feature at the base of the organs. Continue up the gully until just before the ridge-top, at which point a gully weakness on the South side of Dingleberry is apparent and provides a 3rd class scramble to the summit. Descend the route, or off the North side (2 short rappels, 15-30m) in a gully which drops to the saddle between Wildcat and Dingleberry.

Protection [Edit]

None required. A 30 m rope may come in handy as a hand-line for some of the steeper 3rd class sections, or as a rappel.
