hiking

SO worth it, but long and deceptive! Starts out as an easy forest walk to the grassy saddle, turns into a moderately scrambley hike to the springs and/or up the rocky stream bed, then becomes real hard hell to summit. Start early so you have time to soak in the springs on the way down. Don't take the scree/3rd/furthest/west-most/stream bed path all the way up, it's steeper than Sarrail, looser than Yam and will add an unpleasant hour, instead take first/alternate/outlier/ridge traverse path up.
