Climber DaveNorth slope from Green Lake  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 7, 2007

Climber Dave

Stopped by on my way home from a week in the sierra, day hiked from Green Lake up the pipeline. Came down the slope off Vagabond straight down to Green Lake, pretty solid but lots of boulder hopping better option if covered with snow.
Even tho the Bishop Pass trailhead lot was full (I had to park in the overflow) I only saw one other group the entire day.
Excellent peak with fantastic views of the Palisades, too bad it's so dry. Will be back for this one again!

Successful climb of Vagabond and Cloudripper, but was horribly sick along the way (AMS).

PellucidWombatRoute Climbed: NW Chutes Descended: NW Ridge of Vagabond Pk  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 9, 2006


We climbed a chute that put us between Vagabond Pk & Cloudripper. I still climbed Vagabond twice, once when waiting for my friend, and again when we had to surmount it to descend the full NW ridge of Vagabond Pk. Our chute wasn't nearly as bad as it looked - the rock was for the most part stable, so the slog wasn't too bad, and the scrambling at the end was fun.

thedusScree slog from Seventh Lake to East Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 25, 2006


Hiked this from Seventh Lake via the East Ridge. The scree slope leading to the ridge is a fine slogfest of the first order. The ridge itself was nice, though, and the views from the top made it all well worth it.

Nice views from the summit of peaks mostly unknown to me at the time since this was my first trip to the area.

Rest day from 2005 Sierra Challenge - the route from the col is excellent. Bagged Vagabond pk en route and went through some fun class 2/low 3 on the final NW ridge to the summit. There is a cool "secret" pipeline route from the South Lake TH that is a lot less circuitous and makes for an interesting hike. Great company on a great climb!

1/2 day-hike, superb views marred by haze. We descended the north slope directly to Green Lakes, which I didn't care for due to loose talus. I took a spill and then stuck to the boulders where ever possible. The ridge from the pass is solid, firm footing.

Great view of the Palisades. Rivals that from Agassiz. While panoramic, it's not as personal. Easy class 3 (couple of moves) to summit.

Can't remember the exact date but this is where I got my E-Mail name. Only back then, you could only use 8 letters. Thus the funny spelling. I've also done it twice from Green Lake.

Concerning Bob's summit log entry below, eight hours sounds more like a third of a day to me. :-)

The climb took longer than I expected, but the summit views were outstanding.

This was Matthew's idea of a half day scramble. Ha! Took 8hrs, but then again, maybe that is what he considers a half day. Gorgeous weather, fun adventure on the descent. Trip Report

cragRoute Climbed: W slope from Chocolate Lake Date Climbed: September 21, 2003  Sucess!


There's a prominent gully above the bench between upper Chocolate and Ruwau. This is class 2-3 talus, pretty solid away from the center of the gully. Fun peak, outstanding views from the summit.

Wanted to bag this one last year but didn't get around to it. Dayhiked up from around Parchers Resort. There's a fairly good view of the Northern Palisades and the Palisade Glacier. Weather was quite nice during the day. Roundtrip time from Parchers Resort was about 8 hours.
