Yes, I read that, he's a madman. That there was crazy. Wife and I are going to take a go at doing a loop of Grunt and Gasp in a couple weeks.

I did Gasp in Tule-Groan-Gasp loop, but not from the gorge.

Grunt BM is on my list. I was going to follow this GPS track staying on the north track in the wash as long as possible both up and down. There was a register there with only a few entries according to the last report.

Umm didn't consider the wash to the north, will review. Looks like about 1/2 mile 600ft to Grunt at where you will need to exit the wash. Thanks for the information.

Instead of topping out on the Gasp or Grunt ridgelines into the McCain area, I am pretty sure you can go almost straight between the two. It looked passable when I was on Gasp. I have not done Grunt.

I have done the Tule, Rozzie, Groan, Gasp loop similar to the one posted here:

I will say it is quiet a climb out of the side canyon of the Gorge up Gasp. Nothing technical that I can remember though.

Thanks, we'll take the Grunt ridge up first. At least we'll get Grunt. Canyon crossing is out I'm too old fer that. Our actual goal is more in getting to McCain. I feel If we can get there we can do the loop. I read your post on the Tule, Groan and Gasp its a bit too much for us. Perhaps Tule and Groan are in the books later. I spent a bit of time last week looking up the Grunt hill from the gorge its going to be tough for sure.

Britain: You planned out a nice loop route. My friend Eric Su descended the ridge between Gasp and Grunt and came back up on your route. The ridge up to Gasp from Grunt is about 1500'. The only comment he made about Grunt itself was that the cholla was thicker than around Groan/Gasp. Looking forward to your trip report smile

The only picture I've seen at Grunt was Cholla. Hazards of hiking. To get up to McCain is like doing Jacumba Mt from Montero only it throws everything at you in the first 2 miles. This is out of my league but must try.
