Ascent Trip Report

Trail to Colchuck lake.

Up Colchuck Glacier, starting around 9am. Crampons very helpful. Hit col around 11am.

Took off pack to go summit Colchuck Peak, and did not bring ice ax or crampons, though they would have been useful. Kept mostly to rock scramble.

Returned to col, donned skis, and skied 2000' down to lake.

Nice hike back to car.

9 hours car to car.
