South Tit is a rounded peak that ALMOST a ranked summit. It is located directly south of Dads Hump. It is an easy cross-country traverse from Dads Hump with a final climb up easy, short scrub to the small summit area. The southern aspects of the peak are much steeper than the gentle northern aspects.

Access

Same as for Dads Hump. This route is part of a cross-country traverse from Dads Hump. South Tit is Peak #2 in the Trout Creek Pass Grand Slam.

Northeast Face, Class 2

This climb begins on the summit of Dads Hump. From that summit, descend the South Face Route. Then do a diagonal, descending cross-country traverse across open sagebrush (of moderate thickness and height), staying L/E of a prominent bump along the way to the saddle at the base of the Northeast Face of South Tit.

From the saddle, scramble up the Northeast Face, staying R/W of the forested terrain on the East Side of the face. The terrain is a combination of short scrub, scree, and gravel. The summit of South Tit is small and has a collection of ground boulders and talus. There were no signs of previous ascent, so I built a cairn on the highest boulder.
