Recommended Posts

Trip: Dragontail and Colchuck - Colchuck Col

 

Date: 6/18/2011

 

Trip Report:

Climbed/Skiied Dragontail and Colchuck via Colchuck Col. A few things of note:

 

- Snow on the trail starting 500 feet below the lake with bare spots.

- Snow around the lake with very few bare spots, but skinning does not start until the lake shore below the Colchuck Glacier

- Colchuck is ski-able, but snow is thin and rotten

- Dragontail is a fantastic ski through Asgaard Pass.

- The top of Dragontail requires about 50 feet of exposed class three rock. Can be done in ski boots

- Time round trip car to car was about 13 hours
