RedwicEnchantment Slam!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 12, 2011


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 waited a couple of hours after sunrise to ascend Little Annapurna, to give enough time for the snow to soften. Great views from the summit, but probably the least interesting peak of the four we visited on this trip. The next peak (Enchantment Peak) was a lot better.

This has one of the illest summit areas. I love the stone formations. We had a tricky descent trying to end up down by isolation lake.

Date Climbed: Jun 29, 2010


Was initially aiming for Dragontail today, but the route was too corniced and avy prone to ascend, so opted for Little A, and was treated to a pleasant stroll through snowfields and 'enchanting' views.

What a view! Walked up this instead of climbing Prusik unfortunately (weather was no good). Still had enjoyable time in Enchantments before heading over to the west ridge of Stuart

No snow on this fall larch trip. The summit plateau with large blocks was a real surprise.

Hiked from the trailhead for Colchuck lake. We didn't have a permit, so we did it in one day. Beautiful but exhausting. Nearly 18 miles and over 6000ft elevation gain, and we finished in the dark. Definitely an area I will be going back to though.

Amazing views. The summit area looks like the ruins of an ancient castle.

Perfect weather. Did this as part of a day hike from Stuart Lake TH to Snow Lakes TH. Made for a long day with Little A. thrown in. Fun and easy scramble. Great view of Stuart and The Nightmare Needles.

Solo hike/scramble. Left from the Stuart Lake TH at 8:20. To N end of Colchuck L. by 10:20. Another hour took me through the boulder field on the S side of the lake to the start of the ascent to Aasgard Pass. Up to the pass in 2 hours with a nice easy pace. From there I skirted around a few lakes to the NE side of LA then up that heading SW to the NW of the summit,where there is a use trail for the last few hundred feet. Summited at 3:30. Left after 10 min, back to Aasgard by 4:45. Was getting pretty tired by then so went down trusting boulders I wouldn't have normally, fortunately with only one minor fall. Stupid, I know. Back to the boulder field at the lake by 6:15. By here I realized I wasn't going to make it back to the car before dark, and I had forgotten my headlamp. A nice man at the lake gave me a half litre of water as I had just ran out, which really helped. Back to the N end of the lake by 7:10. Reached the Stuart L. trail around 8. Fortunately by the time the sun went down I was on the smoother portion of the trail. It was pretty dark for the last 20 minutes or so. Finally saw some headlamps in the distance, a couple of guys in the parking lot planning on going up DT the next morning. Back to the car at 8:50. A great day and an absolutely beautiful area. Next time I go up here i'll have to get a permit and stay a couple of days in the UE so I can fully enjoy the area.
