Hippy Hill is the middle sister in the 3125-3195 peak trio.
After a quick side stop at peak 3125 in the Goldfields you spot this little cutie all rocky and stubborn smack dab in the middle, the only thing standing in your way of easily reaching Peak 3195.
To top off this little beauty you need to get on her good side (try the south) and do some fun and rocky scrambling up, up and up a tiny bit more in a counterclockwise semi-spiral along her rocky spine.


Armed to the teeth with cholla and scree on her eastern end I'd suggest watching your step on the way down if you choose to head right over to her taller sister peak as an afterthought.
