Ascent Trip Report

Enchantments traverse via Cannon and Enchantment pk. Climbed Cannon from Mountaineer creek (just before 1st footbridge crossing), very direct and straightforward route. Only climbed the clearly higher NE summit of Enchantment.

Edit: Some additional info about Cannon West Ridge direct route - I have heard multiple experienced climbers say that the route did not go so smooth for them on descent. I have also heard other reports of the route going quite well on ascent for other parties. Based on this I would not recommend descending this route blindly after coming up another way. There is some steeper terrain at ~5400' - there may be an easier way further climbers right but this way seemed fine for us. Note that there was a slip and accident on this route in November 2019 around the 5400' level; it seems icy conditions were a contributing factor for the accident
