Starting up Nippletop from just above UT-9

I'd had a fine time climbing Nippletop with Mike C a couple/few years earlier, so I suggested it to Sarah and Dwight after finishing up Mount Spry and Spry Canyon on a fine spring day.
North to South Ariel and Aires Butte

Although our day in Spry was fantastic, half-way up Nippletop, the weather grew poor and a light snow began to fall.
More balancy than it appears, this is the route's crux

Little did I know at the time, but as we sauntered up to the summit of this fun, little peak, a friend of mine was also reaching the summit of my two-time nemesis, The Sentinel!
The summit comes into view
