Matt WorsterRoute Climbed: north slope from pass above Green Lakes Date Climbed: 9 August 2005  Sucess!

Matt Worster

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.

RickFRoute Climbed: The north slope from green lake via Vagabond Peak Date Climbed: October 18, 2001  Sucess!


This was my second attempt after an unsuccsessful effort the previous October. On my first attempt I was with 2 friends, we set out before sun up and we tried to scramble directly up the north face of Vagabond Peak from Green Lake. there was 6 in. of new snow and at about 1:00 p.m. we decided to retreat. We desended via the platuea and ridge which leads to the trail back to green lake. I went solo on this second trip and decided to go the somewhat longer but easier traveled route we had descended the previous year. I made good time, I stopped and ate lunch lunch on Vagabond Peak at noon and summited Cloudripper by 1:15. It was a clear day and the view from the top was spectacular! I made it back to my truck at the South Lake trailhead by 5:00 p.m.
