Description 

The trail between Colchuck Lake and the Enchantments Core Zone. Ascending steep boulders and small streams for nearly 2,000 feet, Aasgard Pass delivers you right to Washington alpine heaven.

The pass provides one of the two options to approach Prusik Peak, and is the descent used from Dragontail Peak.

Getting There 

Hike Colchuck Lake trail (5 miles), then continue around to far side of lake (1 mile).

After crossing a field of large boulders and crossing a few streams in the trees, you are at the start of Aasgard Pass.

OR, Travel up Snowcreek Trail (about 11 miles) and you'll be at the top of Aasgard Pass.

Is there a rap line down the gully climbers right of Acid Baby/Valkyrie? The nice fresh tat visible from the summit pitch makes me wonder...
