The views are amazing. The small alpine meadows along the way are filled with flowers (early July) and you may even be lucky enough to spot some mountain goats.

Difficult physically but not technically, plenty of knife edge holds. First part is a steep hike, second part is a scramble up knife edge rocks. Views are neat.
Park roadside walk past the gate right, follow the 2-3 blue ribbons then you should see a passage between two orange ribbon marked tree on your left, going between them reveals a faint path, take the left side and follow it until you start ascending a steep path, it’s pretty clear from here.

Monday 28th May 2018. It's a very steep ascent but totally worth the views. The summit was almost snow free and you can avoid the snow all the way up. There is a little bit of scrambling but nothing too sketchy or exposed. The views from the summit are just incredible!

Steep climb most of the way, great views and a bit of route finding to navigate a few areas
