Ascent Trip Report

We attempted Dragontail on our day thru-hike of the Enchantments from the Stuart Lake Trailhead to the Snow Lakes Trailhead. We planned to attempt a class 3 route that went around the glacier. We left the trail and followed the ridge towards the peak from near the top of Aasgard Pass. Visibility was severely limited with low-lying clouds. When we reached the summit headwall, it began to snow, and not finding a class 3 route that I was comfortable with, we turned around to catch up with the rest of the group. My GPS watch locked up on the descent, so my trip data was lost.
