Well, I did a run at it today. Took me 5 hrs to get to the final climb. I had time to do half of what was left but I would not have peaked. Got within 1/2 mile. The last section looked the easiest. I was thinking this ridgeline would be like Grunt but it was not much, much steeper. Going down was another story. Fun hike.

Hike ended here. Gasp in view!
But I did find another spring on the way down, so all not lost!

So close! Did you start at the same place in the gorge that you used to get Grunt?

Hard to believe you found water anywhere out there.

Yes but next ridge south of the Grunt ridge. Awesome hike! Coming down was an adventure as going up! May do this again from a different route.
Looking down from the place I quit from.

I will have to admire those who do Tule then to Groan across to Gasp and down to Grunt. Some awesome hikers. Heres the Grunt hill.

That's an awesome photo of Grunt, so much detail! I hope I can make the trip out to Grunt this year.

Thanks, I enjoy photography as much as the journey. I carry a high-end Canon in which I have a quick release system mounted to my shoulder straps of the pack. I'll probably go back and check out the spring area later.
