MiguelVieiraSouth ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 24, 2009


Did a loop out of South Lake trailhead past Chocolate Lakes, Ruwau Lake, and Long Lake. I got to the top of Chocolate Peak with a quick cross-country hike from the saddle to its southeast. The top has excellent views for the effort required to get there.

Trip report of my Chocolate Peak loop hike.

This was a great hike for my father and me. We weren't too sure when to leave the trail to traverse up the backside of Chocolate, but told each other there's only one way but up! It was a great day..

Had planned on just doing the Chocolate Lakes Loop with my son Kevin but found it extremely fun climbing to the top. Sweet vistas all around.

Made this peak alot more interesting with class 3/4 on snowy choss. Lots of fun, this is a great little peak with outstanding views. I wouldn't know, it was snowing all the way up, and the summit ridge had about 100 yards of visibility!

Ran up with Catherid on Labor Day to get one more peak in before going home. Great area, easy to see why its such a popular trail... Lots to do in the area will definately be back.

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!

Looking to supplement my climb of Mt Agassiz on the 4th day of the Sierra Challenge, I climbed geologically interesting Chocolate Peak.
