Was trying to figure out how I wanted to approach Little AP and while milling around going the typical route, veered to climbers right from Asgard and tagged the top of this peak. Easy scramble from the back - fun!

Easy Scramble. From Aasgard we went down towards the base, crossed over at the west edge of Isolation lake, then climbed up and around the west side of the tower to the back where an obvious ramp leads toward the summit. Afterwards we walked across snow col above the Isolation and went up little Annapurna. The rock is pretty steep below Witches tower, an easier (also a bit longer) approach would be to cross the water at Isolation Lake's outlet on the East and then head towards Little Annapurna, cross the snow col and head towards Witches Tower. Best combined with Little Annapurna.

We scrambled up the Witches Tower after abandoning our plan to climb Prussik Peak. Big snowpack meant traveling around the Enchantments took longer than expected. The routes were all wet so we opted to scramble up the peak and glissade down the snow chutes.

First time to Enchantments despite being a local, wanted to have a stellar view. Witches Tower delivered! Perfect weather to boot. Very easy scramble, did as a day-hike via Aasgard. Do it!

Stopped by on the way back to camp from Dragontail so we could check out the lines. Lines were beautiful we were too lazy to come back up the steep snow with trad gear, so we just scrambled it.

Scrambled up with only 100' or so of visibility. Combined with Colchuck, Dragontail, Little Annapurna, and McClellan all in the same day, starting from Colchuck trailhead.

Scrambled the normal route after traversing over from Little Annapurna. The route was covered with snow in spots which made it interesting. Nice views from the summit, but I almost got blown off by some ferocious winds. Nice looking peak, I'd like to try one of those routes on the East Face.

One of the best scrambles in the area with commanding views of all the upper lakes and beyond. Highly recommended!

Climbed alone while the rest of my party napped on the summit of Dragontail.

I climbed Witches Tower as a suggestion from a climber I met on the summit of Dragontail. Traversed the south ridge of Dragontail until was able to drop down to the south side of WT and scrambled to the summit with a commanding view over the entire Enchantment basin. From there continued to Little Annapurna and back down to Aasgard pass for the long downhill to the trail head, great day in one of the most beautiful places. I'd like to come back and try some of the other more technical routes, also Witches Tooth looked enticing.
