I hiked in through the Colchuck Lake trail and had to slog up Aasgard Pass – 2300 vertical feet in less than one mile.
September 27, 2009: Day 2
I had camped at Perfection Lake the first night, and in the morning made a quick little jaunt up to Prusik Pass to check out the view.After the morning exploration, I did some fishing and then packed up camp to move back into the Upper Enchantments. Found a nice spot near a tarn at the base of Little Annapurna and pitched the tent. Next up, I set off to conquer Little A.
