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.

great loop hike, easily accessible from south lake trailhead - climbed west chute, basically just an extension of the ridge formed by chocolate peak that divides ruwau and chocolate(?) lakes - then traversed ridge to cloudripper and vagabond and descended via green lake and then cross-country to the parking lot - great day out

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!

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.

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.
