Did as dayhike, took 10 hours. Grueling up talus to Aasgard pass. Easy snow/glacier and class 2 backside of summit. Magnificent views of Enchantments, Colchuck, Argonaut, Sherpa, Stuart, and Rainier. Spectacular granite and immense walls everywhere.

bc44caesar

Climbed up the snow couloir above Colchuck Glacier after climbing Colchuck. Descended from Pandora's Box via the moat on the right rather than downclimb the snow. Easy traverse to the summit, hung out for an hour hoping the clouds would lift a little, then headed down Aasgard Pass. Easy routefinding overall, even with all the clouds. Back to the car in under 11 hrs.

Vertigo soul

As gcap said - aborted attempt on "Triple Coo" due to rock fall danger and questionable snow conditions. Probably just a bit too late in the season, but we thought the big winter might have allowed us to squeeze it in. Just weren't sure what condition the runnels would be in so played it safe and slogged up to Aasgard Pass. Amazing views!

In a two-day span with great weather and great snow conditions, Gimpilator, Josh Lewis, and I summited Colchuck Peak, then Dragontail Peak, then Little Annapurna, and finally Enchantment Peak. Over 10000' of cumulative elevation gain!

We traversed from Colchuck Peak to Dragontail Peak on the first day. We got very lucky with conditions during that traverse. Above the SW Couloir of Dragontail Peak, we had to downclimb the steepest snow slope any of us had ever done. If the snow had been icier or powdery, considering we had no rope, it could have been treacherous. We lucked-out, and got through OK. Great views from the summit!

Date Climbed: May 30, 2010

MachSix

Humped the ski gear up to Colechuck lake, strapped on the gear and skied across the lake and up Asgard Pass. Very prevalent avy debris in Asgard. Set up camp next to one of the frozen lakes and hunkered down for the night (very cold and windy).
Woke up to a beautiful morning! Strapped on the skis again and ascended the face to the summit. The ski down that face was one of the best runs I've had all season. Perfect corn.

I feel a little cheated b/c the route was in awesome condition. Perfect snow covered almost all of the technical sections outside of an ice step and a rock traverse. Great route.

Scrambled up Asgaard pass and ran into ice and snow about 300' from the summit. We called it good and turned back. It was a great day!

Man, didn't notice the recomendation not to go up Colchuck Col in late season but a bit of rockclimbing around the ice got us up around the bad stuff. Did Colchuck and Dragontail, down via Aasgard Pass. Pictures & map at http://www.willhiteweb.com/enchantments/dragontail_peak/colchuck_lake_089.htm

Cascade Scrambler

Had every intention of bagging Dragontail and Colchuck. Turned around less than 100 feet from the saddle between the two peaks, due to rockfall. Small stuff is bad enough, but when a microwave sized rock comes barreling down at you and you still have to downclimb it later- that's just not a game I'm playing. (Attempted from the north.)

Climbed this guy with SouthRaker. Awesome views, beautiful scenery! I'll probably get my hiking legs under me before doing Asgaard again. A little slow and shakey going down
