TheNobleSunfishWest Chute  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 17, 2011


Took the West chute to the summit - mostly class 2 with a few short class 3 sections. Lots of loose rock, though - so much that we opted to go over Vagabond and descend the talus field to Green Lake instead of downclimbing the route.

orandallWest Chute - Secor  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 3, 2011


Took the main chute with right branch at the "Y" in the middle, per Secor. Lots of friction slab work in the upper chute with the final slab to exit onto the ridge seeming more like class 4, though very do-able. Descent via Green Lake; talus was pretty terrible.

Many flowers on the ridge above the saddle. The scree field to the saddle was surprisingly easy. There is the stable side for hiking up and there is the loose side for sliding down. Great peak.

We climbed the East Ridge from Seventh lake, after camping overnight at Black Lake. The climb up to the col before the East Ridge was a slog. The summit scramble was very short but fun.

Great day hike. Climbed up from Chocolate Lakes. Stayed mostly on the 4th class slabs on the left side of the chute - fun scrambling! Great views of the Palisades. Descended to green lake. First time I've hiked/climbed in the Sierra and never encountered one person all day! Was even more surprising given the popularity of the S. Lake/Bishop Pass area.

Oh man! This was an awesome climb! Blair and I kept it as 4th and 5th Class as possible with some 3 to rest on. Loved it....and so easy to get to as well. Hit Vagabond on the way out too.

Did it the right way this time from Green Lake, then descended to Thunder and Lightning lake on the way back. NICE!

A-LexFrom the North Slope/Ridge  Sucess!


I climbed this one day thinking it would be a part of like four peaks total, but I got hella lost. I wound up cruising along the north ridge which wandered me past two other summit registers that hadn't been signed in like fifteen years! One was informally called "Thunder and Lightning Peak," and the other was something like Peak 13,112 (basically a bump on the ridge). Either way I found some really fun climbing before those peaks along the ridge. And the view of the Palisades from Cloudripper is so sweet!

Perfect day for a summit climb. Came up from 7th Lake and the worst of it was the nasty mile up a scree slope which took us only 45 minutes!

We, myself & my W.P.'s Jackie & Steve Neau, & Cindy Thaw, hiked/climbed the talus field adjacent to 7th Lake,(large talus), then up the talus slope to the saddle, then up the talus NE ridge to the summit. Beautiful windless warm day ! It's always great to get "high"! Duck Soup !
