Attmepted this yesterday. No snow at the trailhead but progressively more as you ascend (up to waist deep at some points!). Very cloudy so limited views, got to within 800m (300 vertical m) of the summit before turning around. Will try this again in the summer.

Good little day hike if you don’t mind the steep uphill. We completed it about five hours with a break at the top.
Heavy cloud and snow at the summit.

This was such a fun hike! Quite challenging at times with a few scrambles along the way. Make sure you have sturdy footwear as the terrain can be misleading. The top has an amazing view, worth the steep ascent.
Make sure you take note of where you come out of the forest at the trail head. Not very well marked. But overall great trail!

Great hike away from all tourists. The views are worth the hike and scrambles, unforgettable.

Great hike. A bit difficult in places. Some exposure near the top. The views are amazing. Completed in 7 hours at the very slow pace.

It’s definitely an expert hike! Make sure you’ve got good footwear and possibly some hiking poles for the steep descent, definitely very helpful! Bug spray is a good one, we went on an overcast day and we were swarmed the higher we got. Beautiful views and definitely worth the 3-4 hike( in ).Make sure you make note of where you come out of the Forrest and begin your ascent, we lost the trail back through the Forrest and ended up getting lost on a big for longer then we’d like to admit.

Difficult to find the trailhead in the springtime/ when waters at the base are higher. Moderate to the treeline then difficult to the top.

Long slog up the ridge with rewarding views. One moderate section of scrambling at the crux with no real exposure just loose rock. No water past the swamp/pond at beginning of scramble.
