Dragontail Backbone Ridge

Ascend­ing 2000 feet / 610 meters up the north face of Drag­ontail Peak, Back­bone Ridge is not for the faint-of-heart, but instead is for rock climbers who desire to test them­selves on an alpine rock route of near­ly match­less qual­i­ty, and beau­ty. Ris­ing out of the Alpine-Lakes Wilder­ness to tow­er above the jagged peaks and alpine lakes of the Enchant­ments, Drag­ontail is one of Wash­ing­ton’s most icon­ic moun­tains. As for­mi­da­ble as the peak appears there have been those that have chal­lenged its steep­est faces — and we have them to thank for clas­sic test pieces like Back­bone Ridge.

This trip is done on a cus­tom basis.
