Colchuck Peak/East Route

We camped at the lake and summited on Sunday, skiing out.

  • Sat, May 6, 2017 — Sun, May 7, 2017
  • Colchuck & Dragontail Peaks
  • Climbing
  • Successful
  • Road impassable/closed
  • Road closed near Icicle Creek Road so had to walk to trailhead.  Snow started soon after the trailhead but lots of tracks to follow over bridges and up to lake.  The lake is frozen and we camped at north end.  Got up at 6 am, used crampons whole way up the col, summited about 11am.

    We skied down and on south facing slopes was great, but ice from the col on down to just 500 feet above the lake.  We started out from lake at 3pm and got to car by 7:30pm.  Amazing trip.

    Route from trailhead on was snow, used crampons beginning at lake in the morning.
