Route Climbed: North Slope Date Climbed: Oct 11, 2003  Sucess!

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.

Route 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.
