Rock Climbing in Dragontail Peak Climb, Wenatchee, Washington USA
Dragontail Peak is the second highest peak, located in the Stuart Range on the Cascade Maountains. Its Northwest facade is considered to be one of the finest solid walls in the Cascades. There are several summit towers on the mountain but the highest one stands at 8840 ft/2694 m high.
The best season for this climb is from July to September and the skill level required is grade IV, class 5,8, perfect for advanced rock climbers. It is possible for a climber to approach and climb Dragontail Peak in one day, but it is more of an adventure to spend the night over. The climb starts easy with two very long pitches and as you climb higher, there are more technical difficulties.
Once you reach the top, the view of the upper Enchantments and the surrounding summits is breathtaking. To descent, you can hike down from the back side. Dragontail Peak climb is an amazing and rewarding experience for rock climbers. You will need a map and a compass, low temperatures camping gear, a 196 ft/60 m rope, slings and an ice axe.
