Platonic Peak  Sucess!

Crossed over from Cloudripper. Couldn't find a register. Must be very well hidden. Returned to South Lake parking lot via Green Lake. Walked on the old water pipeline fromm Bluff Lake. Easy on the knees.

En route to Cloudripper  Sucess!

Grabbed Vagabond en route to Cloudripper. There was a decent amount of snow up there already. I hope this bodes well for the season...we definitely need a wet winter to make up for the past 4 years.

Before Cloudripper  Sucess!

The register is in a hole under the main summit block, held in place with two rocks. It is not easy to find. I added a picture to aid future hikers.

On the way back from Cloudripper  Sucess!

Apparently, no register.

On the Way to Cloudripper  Sucess!

Although I made it a point on the way out to find the high point, I never found a register. I went on to Cloudripper, and passed over the shoulder of Vagabond on the way back. The peak is also known as Thunder and Lightning Peak, which I think is a better name.

Do I claim it twice?  Sucess!

Tagged on the way to and from cloudripper. I climbed it two years ago, so does that make it my 2nd and 3rd summit today?

It was in the way  Sucess!

Took a long route from the north shore of South Lake (longer in distance and adds elevation gain on return) then took the trail all the way above Green Lakes. Had to go over Vagabond on way to Cloudripper. Summit blocks were a bit spicy though! Trip report is HERE.

Vagabond  Sucess!

Summited Vagabond via Green Lake. Had hoped to go on to Cloudripper but ran out of time. So Cloudripper remains on the "to do" list.

From Green Lake  Sucess!

On route to Cloudripper. Nice peak in it's own right, great views

Great Views  Sucess!

Nice white clouds made for great pictures of the Palisades and the Inconsolable Range from the summit. Took a nap.

Why not  Sucess!

On the way back from Cloudripper. I found the way down to Green Lake to be endless semi-loose boulder-hopping hell, but that's just me. :-)

On the way  Sucess!

On the way to Cloudripper via South lake / Green Lake. I didn't find a register up there, but didn't look too hard.

Via Green Lake  Sucess!

On the way to Cloudripper.

pipeline from South Lake

SC 2012 day 5 alternate peak. Summit hail helped me decide not to head over to Cloudripper today.

From South Lake  Sucess!

Nice outing, good company, pretty easy dayhike.

From South Lake  Sucess!

Day hike from South Lake. Relatively easy outing although I really felt the altitude! Hadn't been up high since early April.

From Coyote Flats/Baker Creek  Sucess!

Ended up being a turnaround point on my way to Cloudripper. As I descended the south side the wind was blasting hard enough to knock my feet out from under me. It's a fun little peak so it was nice to get *something*.
