Ascent Trip Report

We had some free time hanging around camp at Gnome Tarn, so we decided to scramble up Enchantment Peak. We traversed around to Prusik Pass from camp, then basically headed straight up in a beeline to the NE Peak, clearly visible from the pass. It was mostly a walk up, followed by some class 3/4 scrambling up the summit block, then one or two low class 5 moves onto the summit. It was very windy on top, so we sat just long enough to grab a summit shot (taken by Jason back at camp with a telephoto lens!) before heading back down.
