Did a 10 hour round trip into the Enchantments for some July turns. For anyone interested there is still a good bit of vertical on Little Annapurna but it's too far for me to haul gear into.

There is also a very steep pitch up a crampon slope to Dragontails saddle.

I have left better tracks...

There is also a waterslide that someone could get a first descent on! (ask for exact location)

 Smiley I've always got my 30 centimeter rock skis with the rubber edges...If you have to dirt hike up and down Aasgard Pass does anyone bring them?  Maybe I'm just getting weak and old... I didn't even want to scramble up Little Annapurna! Now if I could drive a jeep up to Colchuck...
