Ascent Trip Report

Made an attempt at Dragontail Peak all the way from the far end of Stuart Lake. Turned out to be an 18 mile day, about 12 hours camp to camp. Didn't make the Dragontail summit. Aasgard Pass was brutal enough and it was too late in the day. Ate lunch while we watched mountain goats sparring. We got back to camp after dark with slightly worried friends waiting for us.

Had a nice 4 nights camping at Stuart Lake. Also hiked up to Horseshoe lake a different day.
