Backbone To Fin  Sucess!

Climbed it sometime late 2009 can't remember the date. Great times. Backbone to Fin rules.

Triple Couloirs  Sucess!

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.

Denied the Summit

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!

Colchuck Col in August!  Sucess!

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

Denied

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.)

East Ridge  Sucess!

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

Colchuck to Asgaard  Sucess!

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

Dragontail dayhike  Sucess!

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.

Serpentine Ridge (IV 5.8)  Sucess!

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.

Aasgard Pass/Snow Creek Glacier  Sucess!

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.

Serpentine Ridge  Sucess!

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!
