West Chute  Sucess!

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.

From Vagabond  Sucess!

Did it the right way this time from Green Lake, then descended to Thunder and Lightning lake on the way back. NICE!

From 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!

45 minutes  Sucess!

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!

A quicky from 4th Lake  Sucess!

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 !

West face from Chocolate Lakes  Sucess!

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

Up east chute and rib, down east ridge to seventh lake  Sucess!

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.

rippin it up  Sucess!

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
