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

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.)

Camped overnight at Aasgard Pass and watched the sunset and moonrise. Summited in the morning but thick cloud cover obscured the views.

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

Great views of everything. One of the most exciting summits I've been on, the small ledge overlooking the lake a couple feet below the summit is awesome! Climbed up the small glacier from Aasgard pass and came back down via the Dragontail-Annapurna snow col. Ended up being a 14 hour day at a very relaxed pace with lots of stops.

Hiked in and found a nice campsite close to the small lake (and toilet). Minimal snow on the approach the next morning. The crux pitches were really good (and fairly challenging) and the rest of the route was fun low fifth-class with some harder steps. I didn't find the rock to be that loose and, in fact, thought it was quite solid. The summit was really nice with a comfortable sitting pad and great views of Rainier, Stuart, and Colchuck. We could also see Glacier and a hazy Adams. The descent from Aasgard Pass was long. Spent a second night by the lake and hiked out the next morning.

Camped at Colchuck Lake. The climb to the pass was icy while the glacier was pure fluff. Great views and a very fun winter/spring climb.

Yes, it has some loose rock, but a great climb! We lucked out with some amazing views from the summit, seeing from Rainier all the way north to Mt Baker! And of course the views of the Enchantments were definitely amazing!

Good little romp. Casual 3:45 up from Colchuck Lake, and 1:40 down. Stayed on snow for the most part up to Aasgard, and above that snow was a little mushy. Only about 50 minutes from Agard to summit, and very short amount of time on the actual ridge. Camped at the lake which is melted out and a few camp sites are becoming apparent. Squitoes are also becoming apparent and I can imagine the nightmare in another month or so.
