Scariest $!"@ing hike I have ever done. Next time I'll bring a helmet, gloves and bellaclava. This was totally worth the intensity and has put every other hike I've done to shame. If it's not as hard as the crow, then it's not hard. I saw one goat, pretty cool. Oh, and I think I went the full 8 hours without thinking about my personal problems (divorce, big mortgage payments, lololol).

I strongly recommend good hiking footwear. Once through the tree line it's a large area of loose scree/rock/shale. Stay right. We did not go to the top because we lost the trail and went straight up/left from the tree line. However we did come up on 3 good size mountain goats which is rare. Will be back to do again and get to the top. Views were awesome.
