After passing this many times going to/from other peaks, I finally scrambled up the south side and down the north.

Nice little climb  Sucess!

Nice warmup for the next day's ascent of Mt. Agassiz. We were camping at Saddlerock Lake and hiked over the ridge to Ruwau and then up the ride and followed the cairns. Picnic on top!

South ridge  Sucess!

Did a loop out of South Lake trailhead past Chocolate Lakes, Ruwau Lake, and Long Lake. I got to the top of Chocolate Peak with a quick cross-country hike from the saddle to its southeast. The top has excellent views for the effort required to get there.

Awesome views  Sucess!

This was a great hike for my father and me. We weren't too sure when to leave the trail to traverse up the backside of Chocolate, but told each other there's only one way but up! It was a great day..

White Chocolate Direct  Sucess!

Made this peak alot more interesting with class 3/4 on snowy choss. Lots of fun, this is a great little peak with outstanding views. I wouldn't know, it was snowing all the way up, and the summit ridge had about 100 yards of visibility!

Bishop Pass trail to Ruwau Lake  Sucess!

Ran up with Catherid on Labor Day to get one more peak in before going home. Great area, easy to see why its such a popular trail... Lots to do in the area will definately be back.
