jdmorehouseChocolate Sunday  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 5, 2014


Originally the day was planned as an ascent of Aggasiz after climbing Goode the day before, but a wedding party in my campground had a live band blasting from eight to well after midnight, nonstop. I got so little sleep I decided to climb Chocolate instead, taking the loop around the peak from the Bishop Pass trail. Easy, mellow day with many fine lakes along the way to admire.

Bailed on Cloudripper due to sketchy conditions in the west chute and bagged Chocolate Peak as a consolation prize for the day.

Not sure why I did this peak..

oh yea, that's right..I wanted an excuse to get out on a beautiful fall day (perfect weather before the storm), and was aiming for Picture Puzzle but it's north slopes had too much snow on them.

Tons of signatures in the summit register. Fine day with perfect weather.

Took the geologically scenic scramble - up the seam between white to gray marble and choco quartzite. Lovely scramble, very worthwhile. Our next objective, Cloudripper, stared down at us from the summit. Great lake views.

Nice warmup for the next day's ascent of Mt. Agassiz. We were camping at Saddlerock Lake and hiked over the ridge to Ruwau and then up the ride and followed the cairns. Picnic on top!
