I took 18 guys from Dallas to do this by backpacking in and doing some fly-fishing. I was the leader of the group. This was one of my early days of hiking. I was told that it was an easy hike. I was four months out from having my entire right leg re-aligned. Let's just say I struggled. The switch backs the first several miles straight up are tough with a fifty pound pack on. Beautiful country though with awesome views. I want to go back now that I'm more experienced and in better shape.

Summit is 11157 ft. Many switchbacks, very strenuous. The view of Ross Lake is stunning.
