Great short scramble from the Enchantments trail. Easy summit with amazing views!
Very fun and beautiful solo day hike. Joined the hordes in the upper basin and on Little Annapurna after relative solitude on Dragontail.
After a 7 hour snowstorm that left us tent bound for most of Wednesday, the weather finally cleared up fairly late in the evening. Left camp at Tranquil Lake around 9:00PM, reached the summit in 35 minutes, back down just after 10:00. Used ice axes; pretty straightforward route.
A long day, but went climbers right at Asgard and tagged the Witches Tower first, then through a couple glissades and some sidehilling with good snow, made my way up Little AP. Had the summit to myself. Went back via typical approach route - fun, LONG single solo push
I love it when permit season ends! Great day.
My first time in the Enchantments. Great 17 mile day taking Aasgard Pass approach.
A nice little after-dinner walk after Colchuck/Dragontail.
Easy walk up but boy what a beautiful view. I want to return and camp out overnight on the summit.
Great views- nice welcome home to Cascadia. Thanks Oyvind.
Fun route and the entire area had lots of evidence of the huge rain storms that flooded the area the previous week. The gully above the tarn in Crystal Creek was fun and the south face route itself was solid and around 5.5....see my route page!
In a one day thru hike we climbed Witches Tower then walked the ridge above Isolation lake to little A then continued down to crystal lake and out.
Nice scramble up Little Annapurna in about 45 minutes from camp down in the upper lakes. Didn't do the traverse from Dragontail unfortunately...that would have been a nice link with the Witches Tower.
Went with EastKing and cyohma via Asgard Pass. Beautiful setting with clouds casting a few shadows, Isolation lake frozen over and bear tracks crossing it. Asgard was no problem coming up in the frozen morning snow but, going down, it thawed considerably; creating waterfall hazards and dangerous conditions for glissading. I agree with EK that it's probably resembling June conditions and past it's prime for glissades.
Beautiful mountain!! Little Annapourna was very beautiful. Conditions though are early June and glissades down Asgard are quiet risky.By Memorial Day it will be downright dangerous to glissade down Asgard.
I got to the top of Dragontail with plenty of time to spare so I decided to traverse over to Little Annapurna. It was nice to get deeper into the Enchantments.
Fantastic views of the whole enchantment area.
Climbed in a morning on a backpacking trip to the Enchantments - a fun, easy walk-up.
I have yet to figure out what possible resemblance it bears to the Himalayan peak.
The date on this one is something of a guess, I know it was the summer of 2008.
Fantastic views! Mostly rock all the way to the top. Cool meadow/rockpiles on the summit.
cool summit area
