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.

Day Hiker

From Bishop Pass trailhead, via Green Lake and Vagabond Peak. On the return, I exited to the trailhead at Parcher's Ranch, just to see that trail and how it is. (Then I walked back up the road to get back to my car.) It's just a rocky horse-and-horseshit trail. Or maybe I was just tired after doing Cloudripper and Vagabond. Anyway, to get to and from the Green Lake trail, I recommend using the Bishop Pass trailhead, not Parcher's Ranch.

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 !

Nice short scramble up, though I topped out on Vagabond instead. The talus descent to Green Lake sucked on the return, though.

Date Climbed: Jun 9, 2009


From tarn east of Seventh Lake up big snowy chute. Moved to the rib that goes directly to the summit once the snow started to soften up. Class 2-3. Fun descent of east ridge on mostly snow and then scree to Seventh Lake. Beautiful morning climb, then walked out in hail and then rain.
