I had last climbed this peak in 1975. It was like seeing an old friend again. I admit that I was in much better shape back then so I did not remember this hike as being so steep. It was a tough climb but the view was awesome and the summit pinnacle is a fun class 3 climb.

Great hike, fantastic views.

The end view is worth it, but the snow makes it challenging the last 1/3 because you're just trying not to slip/fall. It was much easier to go down than I thought. if you embrace the "controlled fall" and "ski" (in my shoes) or sled (on my butt) down the snow parts - it's really fun/fast.

Recommend bringing gloves and waterproof pants for the snow part. Did it in trail runners, but would have been much better in water proof hiking boots and long socks.

Difficult trail , it took me almost 2 hours climb up. I tried to find the best -easy way to climb the rocks to the peak , but there isnt an easy way , use what ever works best for you.
The hike is mostly in the woods , no special views , but once you reach the top - you are rewarded with a magnificent view of lake Tahoe and the mountains and lakes around !!! it sure is worth the climb !!!

This trail was definitely a lot harder that expected. Pretty mellow for the first part but about half way up it gets really steep. the 360 view at the top as well as the sister peaks are incredible.
