Incredible Hulk

Elevation: 10,858 ft
Prominence: 1,078

Climbing and access information for this peak is found on page 307. The book covers the the southwest ridge route. Larry Prescott climbed the peaks northeast ridge with his son Ben in October of 2015. 


This is one of the many splendid peaks that surround Bell Mountain. The first ascent was by Rick Baugher via the southwest ridge. I linked below to Rick Baugher’s and Larry Prescott’s trip reports. Larry’s contains additional information and photos for his route.

Northeast Ridge, Class 3 by Larry Prescott 

Access

Heading North on Highway 28 from Mud Lake, we turned southwest at 44.32642 N 113.06042 W. The road led to the entrance to Meadow Canyon. Incredible Hulk, on the south, and Meadow Peak, on the north, guard the entrance to the canyon. We drove until the end of the road. There is a gate barring vehicles from further entrance into the canyon at this point.

Route

Begin by hiking up the north gully and traversing a bit to the east to reach the top of the ridge line as shown on the GPS tract. Follow the ridge up. Above the tree line, there are several obstacles. Rock towers and small cliffs stand in the way. None of these present any challenge above easy class 3 climbing. In fact, many can be avoided by dropping slightly off the ridge and skirting the obstacle. As you ascend east canyon and its stunning north face are passed. From this point, the remaining distance to the summit is without obstacles.
