Forced to deploy the 'ol snowshoes a quarter mile east of Church's Pond on the approach. Took the shoes off for the scramble up the rock field that is Chocolate Peak. Gusting winds so appreciated the little rock wall on the top.

Took a new and unknown route, the "East Arete". Fun scrambling almost made the bushwack worthwhile! Great summit views.

Directions from Church's Pond A-OK. Snow created some interesting challenges. Got a bit turned around on the descent, and if I'd gone the way that I intuited, I would have wound up in that meadow behind the pond. So no big.

[Another attempt 5/23/09; serious bushwhacking through mountain mahogany, which isn't very forgiving. Total PIA, almost not worth it, much better in the snow.]

hgrapidReached the summit, but then got lost  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 27, 2007


I reached the summit in just over 2 hours with an approach from the Jones Creek trail. A ranger told me I could take a trail back down to Blacks Canyon once at the summit. Boy, was she WRONG! I got lost in the woods for over two hours, getting cuts from bushwhacking and ending up in very dangerous circumstances in the steep slopes. The way up to the summit was great, but the rest of the day was AWFUL!!!
