Mammoth Trip, 2022

Chocolate Peak

Chocolate Peak begins with a long drive to South Lake near Bishop. Bill set out at a fast pace, complaining all the while how slow he was. He did not get vastly far ahead of Stella and me, but in any case out of sight.

Bill had also misunderstood my intent for this hike, though we did clear it up before we set out. He thought I wanted to climb part way up Cloudripper to get a feel for it. I thought of that as a possibility, but mainly wanted to get close enough for a look.
