Colchuck Peak Rock Climbing
Colchuck Peak in winter conditions.
A spectacular granitic peak flanked on the north side with a small glacier above Colchuck Lake. There are numerous routes that run the gamut from a moderate glacier walk up/scramble, to rock and moderate snow and ice.
From Leavenworth Drive up Icicle Road to the Bridge Creek Campground and take a left. Follow the bridge over Icicle Creek and continue to the end of Mountaineer Creek Road (parking pass required). From the trailhead head up the trail for about 2.5 miles to a fork in the trail. Take the left fork (the right side leads to Stuart lake) and cross the bridge over Mountaineer Creek. From here the trail veers right for a hundred yards or so before switchbacking up through the trees to Colchuck Lake. The trail circumnavigates the lake on the right (west) side.
-Approximately 5 miles and 2200ft from TH to lake.
In the winter Mountaineer Creek road is closed adding 3 miles and nearly 1000ft to the approach.
Weather station 13.5 miles from here
