Little Annapurna


Alpine Scramble - Little Annapurna

This will be a moderate paced scramble of 15 miles and 5,400' of elevation gain. I intend to do this scramble on Sunday June 12th but may move it to Saturday June 11th depending on the weather. I will send out and email Wednesday June 8th confirming the day and providing additional details.

COVID-19: Learn about our most up-to-date guidance for participants and leaders on our COVID-19 Response page. All participants and leaders must agree to the COVID-19 Code of Conduct before participating in this Mountaineers activity.
  • Strenuous 5, Technical 1
  • For Beginners (Getting Started Series)
  • Mileage: 15.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 5,400 ft

We will meet at the Stuart/Colchuck lake trailhead at 4:45 a.m. and will begin hiking at 5 a.m. Car camping at the trailhead the night before is recommended. 

This will be long day and we will be ascending Aasgard Pass which will likely still be snow covered June 12th.  Because of the length of the scramble I am requiring leaders permission to join this scramble.  Please indicate your fitness level and how much you have been getting out so far this year when requesting permission.  This will be a 12 to 14 hour day depending on the strength of the group and the conditions.
