Fantastic climb of a 14er.
Short mileage but huge elevation gain. Not a trip for the timid - there are long stretches of relatively easy grade interspersed by significant steep climbs. Route finding down is tricky (easy going up). Tough but worth the trip. Be prepared, bring extra water, there is not an easily accessible water access on the way up.
