Fun and interesting peak with great views. <2 hours hiking time from South Lake to summit. And we did eat chocolate on chocolate.

Date Climbed: Jul 1, 2007


Climbed Chocolate after hitting Agassiz earlier in the day. The elevation of this peak gives a nice perspective of the Bishop Pass area. You get a great sense of the physical relief that is lost when climbing the higher peaks. I was utterly spent at the end of the day. I need more conditioning!

Had a great time playing around in the Bishop Creek area with a couple friends. Wandered around on this little mountain for awhile. Nice views from the top.

downbootiesSoutheast from South Lake to Long Lake and then up the southwest slope  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 30, 2006


I came down from this hike looking like a calico cat. With the midmorning emergence of the hot sun, I stripped down to the bare necessities, missing a few places with the sunscreen (like the symmetrical spots approximately over my kidneys where the pack doesn't cover). My poor white underbelly hadn't seen the sun since I tried taking up sunbathing (interested me for one day) a couple years ago. Otherwise, it was a fun snowshoe with Joe, his dogs and my Jon.

thedusGreat Season Opener  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 30, 2006


I snowshoed this with Joe and Robin from about a mile below South Lake. It was an enjoyable hike on a beautiful day. We figured (rightly so) that this would be a good way to begin acclimating for the coming season.

Had hoped to do a loop around Hurd Peak, but several inches of fresh powder made this look a tedious option, so I bailed on that. Surprisingly nice views from Chocolate considering how low it is, especially of Cloudripper and Picture Puzzle.

Tagged this peak on my way back from an easy day on the Sierra Challenge. The highlight of the peak was the interesting shortcut we took down the NW Ridge onto what I called "Vanilla Flats"

A quick side-trip during a day-hike circuit of Long, Ruwau, and Chocolate, and Bull lakes. Great views! Wish I had more time to explore the area.

Where can you get a higher ratio of views to effort? This is a great vantage point to see Bishop Canyon from, and it is so quick and easy from beautiful Chocolate Lake.

On my way down from Cloudripper, I stopped off at this interesting peak. The coloring of it is remarkable, from marble white to cinnamon to chocolate. Trip Report
