Ascent Trip Report

Vagabond Peak would be an incredible peak were it not in the shadow of nearby Cloudripper that hides the incredible view in that direction. That said, the views in all other directions from Vagabond are incredible.

For those going to Cloudripper, the summit of Vagabond adds only 74 vertical feet (if that), and the terrain is enjoyable rock hopping with a bit of class 3 scrambling. That said, Cloudripper is so challenging, I could see many passing on it, especially if they are having problems with the altitude.
