A steep start, but once you get over that, the hike is still moderate, but spectacular. Reaching the ridge crest, you can veer off to Edith Peak, or continue on the trail. It drops down to Edith Lake. One end of the lake is a HUGE boulder field. Fun to go rock hopping, but I would not want to be there when another HOUSE SIZE boulder makes its way down from above.
