much easier than i had expected
Great views and some fresh show
I decided to come back for this peak which had a nice fresh dusting of snow. Near the summit was about a foot or so of snow. Great day out!
Hiked up this peak under a fresh layer of fall snow. It was beautiful
Fun climb. Leading the chimney/OW without a #6 sucked. Beautiful view of Colchuck lake though.
Pretty Pinnacles Goats and Painfully Rocky Slopes
LONG DAY!!! Decent glissade from the ridge to the pass. Great views! First Bulger in a long while. Hopefully the next break between Bulgers will be much shorter.
From the parking lot to the summit and back again. long day. Great peak!
Bailed on the three C's due to warm weather and rock fall, ended up climbing east ridge. Was spectacular being on the the summit at sunrise (w/ gcap & vertigo soul).
Date is a wild guess. Climbed it via easy side while hanging out in Enchantment Basin for several days, skiing all over and climbing easier stuff.
Took the west route and was surprised at how much more work it is to get to the summit from Pandora's Box. Great views of the lakes make it all worth it.
Lots of rock climbing on tht day!
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!
bailed on the tripple due to warm temps, climbed east ridge instead. beautiful day and location. with lutty and vertigo soul
I gotta say this peak was pretty fun!
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!
Camped at Colchuck Lake and up the north face route. Finished with a couple pitches on the Fin.
Direct North Face in winter (much harder than TC), Triple Couloirs, Serpentine Arete.
