Fun hike with excellent summit views. Best glissade I've ever done from Colchuck Col all the way down to the lake!

Climbed Colchuck Peak and Dragontail Peak via Colchuck Glacier route. Colchuck is an awesome summit with amazing views of Rainier, Adams, Glacier Peak, Mt. Baker, and other great Cascade Peaks. Descended via Asgard Pass.

Did this while camped in south side basin for a climb of Argonaut. Rather enjoyable summit plateau, looks like goats use the area heavily.

Mostly straightfoward, and way better than the stretch between Sherpa and Argonaut. Descent via boot-ski of the Colchuck glacier. Trip report.

blueshadeWest Face/SW Ridge - Class 4  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 5, 2013


Climbed up from the SW corner of Colchuck Lake to the low point on the North Ridge just below Point 6991T. Countoured along the base of the cliffs to the small glacier/small basin just to the side of the SW Ridge. Mostly Class 2 to this point.

After getting on the ridge it is mostly Class 2/3 for the first 1/4-1/3. Afterwards it is a combination of Class 3-4, sometimes with moderate exposure (~40'), crossing back and forth over the ridge as needed to avoid cliff bands. The top 1/3 or so seems to take forever...

checked out North Buttress couloir but were stymied by rock step without gear and carrying skis. looks nice enough to return to (without skis).
Settled for Colchuck Gl. and false summit tag. Great day out with Jonah, Annie and Seth.

Snow above ~6500 ft. White out at the col but the summit was above the clouds, glad I continued.

ClimberCrabsI'll call this one good for now
Date Climbed: Jun 13, 2009


I snuck in a trip to Colchuck just before the June 15 start date for permits. Camped in the boulder field below the Colchuck glacier and made too time up to the Col and onto Colchuck proper. Storms had been threatening all day and I finally turned around just shy of the summit when I noticed a menacing cloud front approaching. I rushed down the glacier and boulders, just diving into my tent as the rain started. I've been to Colchuck a few times now and always get turned around shy of the summit. I'll let this one be for not and probably be back before long with a prime season permit in hand.

Successful climb up the North Buttress Couloir, snow was melting badly on the north face and plenty of loose rock if you want it. Made it car to car in 13 hours, started from Bellingham, Wa, at 2 am on the 16th, arriving back in bellingham at midnight the same day

Unusually warm day for May. Lot's of rockfall and terrible snow conditions, but a beautiful day and a great workout.
Rode my bike from Icicle Road up to the trail head to find no snow at all on the road and the parking lot 80% clear. A big NO THANK YOU to the rangers for leaving the road gated for no apparent reason.

Great climb. Beautiful day. Lake was still frozen and we skinned across. Glacier made for a scary/icy ski down and there was deep snow up top. We could see a party up on Triple Couliours on Dragontail.
