Colchuk Conditions?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone been up Colchuk recently? I am thinking about a climb there this weekend. Anyone have suggestions re: gear, crevasse danger, etc? Is it doable in November? Any special routefinding difficulties on the approach?

Check out the conditions on Colchuck Peak under the "Alpine Lakes" section of this web site. It has not snowed since we were there two weeks ago, so conditions will likely be similar.

bummer on having all that new snow up there for the climb. I did Colchuck last October and it was a great, easy ice climb, with 40 degree hard glacial ice that we had to do a running belay on with ice screws. Guess it all depends on what time you go...I've heard Colchuck can be a great ski in the winter and spring from the col down to the lake.
