HohnikerFrom Green Lake via Vagabond


Long route from Green Lake. Didn't stand on the summit block though so I can't claim a summit.

Long hike from Green Lake. Beautiful area. Great views from the top.

Had an outstanding time going up the west chute. Took a right at the Y because the left side had some annoying-looking loose scree to deal with. Got to the ridge about 100 feet south of the summit and scrambled from there. The descent to green lake was boulder-hopping hell.

It was a beautiful day in the mountains around Bishop. Smoke from various fires had blown north to Mammoth.

Date Climbed: Sep 21, 2012


There are two west chutes. Take the right one, as we did. What we did not know was at the point the chute splits, take the right hand one; we mistakenly took the left and ended up pulling a class 5 move to gain a point with a view of the summit ridgeline that told us we had chosen the wrong way. Late in the day and had to turn around. Lots of loose boulders call for careful foot and hand placement.

cafzalWest Chute/Green Lake loop  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 28, 2012


What a wild dayhike! After a late start at the South Lake trailhead, I hiked up to Chocolate Lakes and scrambled up a class 3 route with some class 4 toward the end. I arrived at the summit in time for sunset, which was fantastic. However, this meant I had to scramble over Vagabond and back down to Green Lake and complete the loop in the dark, with a headlamp sporting severely diminished luminescent capacities. I kept on trekking, a full 12 hours without stopping for food, etc. Got back to my car at 2AM and drove back to Bishop feeling damn accomplished.

Nice hike starting at South Lake, then following the trail to the pass above Green Lake. Tagged Vagabond on the way.

Climbed the East Ridge with Amy. Made the 23 mile 4x4 approach up Coyote Road, and had a beautiful day in the mountains. The pen with the summit register ran out of ink (or decided to be stubborn), so bring a pen if you're heading up there!

Climbed with brother Jon. The last 100 feet or so have been described as easy class three -- The ridge narrows to a catwalk with open space on either side and jumbled boulders that you have to scramble over, but it's easy and there's no real exposure. Thankfully. The worst part was climbing up & down the loose boulder field above Green lake.

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.

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.

Eva and I climbed a chute from Green Lake putting us at the west end ridge of Vagabond Peak. It was 35 mintues to Cloudripper from there.

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.
