This will be a strenuous one day potential through hike of the Enchantments. We will enter via Colchuck Trailhead and climb Little Annapurna. Team can decide if they want to finish the through hike or come back to Colchuck. Alternatively, we could potentially tag Little Annapurna and Dragontail if we want to carry more gear.

Leader permission required. Preference goes to those that have climbed with me before until 9/1. If you have not climbed with me before, please send me the following following information 

  • Reference for your fitness. This can be a climb/scramble leader.
