Great hike with amazing views very quick with very quick (steep) elevation gain. Unfortunately we opted to turn back with only a short distance left to go due to snow and ice on the scree with the final scramble. Having already trudged through waist deep snow once past the ridge line - not only was the scree risky with the snow and ice we were getting pretty tired. This hike would be best avoided now until the snow melts, (unless you only intend to go to the ridge line - which the views from there are still very amazing).
