Climbed up via Colchuck Glacier and summited both Colchuck and Dragontail, then descended via Asgard Pass back to my campsite on Colchuck Lake. I met two other climbers while ascending.

Standard route via Aasgard. Early morning snow was firm enough that I was glad to have my axe. After Dragontail I dropped down past Aasgard about 2/3 of a mile to check out the upper basin. From here I decided I had enough gas for Little Annapurna. After getting to the top of Little A I headed back down into the basin, then back up to Aasgard, then down (after jumping in Colchuck Lake). I'm sure there was a quicker way to get back to Aasgard, but why rush in a place like the Enchantments?

All told I think the elevation gain was about 7000', making this one of my biggest day hikes so far.

Great climb as part of a 5 day thru-hike of the Enchantments. Took about 1.5 hours to reach the top from our camp at Tranquil Lake. Ice axes are mandatory this time of year, with microspikes/crampons being a useful addition (we made do without by kicking steps). The scramble from the ridge is way easier than we expected; definitely class 2, not class 3. Mediocre views due to cloud cover, but still worth the effort.

Planned for Dragontail and Witches Tower but almost decided to stop after Witches Tower because of thick clouds. A small break in the clouds gave us some hope so we headed for Dragontail via the Little Annapurna snow col. Limited visibility there but good enough, made the top and got partial view, the weather was beautiful the rest of the day. Long and hard day but so worth it.

10.5 hours car to car with plenty of time to enjoy the scenery. Some of our crew used crampons others just hiking boots. Definitely going to come back and camp at the lake next time for the sunrise/sunset.

Fun day out climbing. Got off route coming down asgard pass in the dark, got back to the car around midnight. Otherwise a great day of climbing and a sweet summit.

Easy descent from Colchuck, then up the gully below the connecting ridge. Crossed over and traversed the top of the small glacier, easy scrambling to the top. Nice view across the basin.

Digglersuper fun!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 31, 2013


finally got on this one. backbone ridge with fin direct, with jay jay. fun, continuous climbing, with a couple of cruxes. off-width would be an .8 in the valley, but whatever- still a fun pitch, maybe the funnest on the climb. started 1st roped pitch, which i actually did first w/o rope and in approach shoes, to make sure we were actually in the right place, confirmed by off-width, before coming back down and belaying jay jay up. topped out 18.25. worked by the time we were back at the tent, shortly after midnight. especially after 2 hours of sleep the night before. epic day.

Last 20' of snow was steeper than I thought it would be - good runout though. Rock section was a walk-up path with a class 2/3 move to sit on the summit. Perfect weather and great views all around. Aasgard still sucks :)

Great weather for an early season outing. Our group was surprisingly the only ones on the mountain that day. Lot's of majestic views and plenty imposing terrain. We did a scramble bypass at the top of Pandora's box to avoid the down climb.
This was a Mountaineers club climb.

Less snow than expected. I switched trail runners to mountaineering boots at Asgard Pass.
