Winter has Arrived  Sucess!

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!

Backbone ridge  Sucess!

Fun climb. Leading the chimney/OW without a #6 sucked. Beautiful view of Colchuck lake though.

Via Aasgard  Sucess!

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.

Triple C   Sucess!

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).

During a ski trip  Sucess!

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.

Gorgeous day.  Sucess!

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.

Original plan was Triple Couloirs  Sucess!

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!

Enchantment Slam!  Sucess!

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!

Great Ski  Sucess!

Humped the ski gear up to Colechuck lake, strapped on the gear and skied across the lake and up Asgard Pass. Very prevalent avy debris in Asgard. Set up camp next to one of the frozen lakes and hunkered down for the night (very cold and windy).
Woke up to a beautiful morning! Strapped on the skis again and ascended the face to the summit. The ski down that face was one of the best runs I've had all season. Perfect corn.
