Vantage Point: From the shores of Colchuck Lake, looking south

Caption: Steep northern slopes of Colchuck Peak. The slopes rising out of frame to the left are part of Dragontail Peak.

PhotoDescr: Taken on a hot daytrip to Colchuck Lake. Colchuck Peak may be the lesser of the two summits rising above Colchuck Lake (Dragontail is the other) but it is more difficult to climb from most sides, whereas Dragontail has a straightforward route on the south side.

A few crevasses of the much-receded Colchuck Glacier are visible lower-left.
