This trail offers beautiful views the entire way up. It is definitely a steep and strenuous hike, with a few portions where you’ll need to use your hands. In some seasons be prepared for large quantities of snow and icy conditions at the top. Micro spikes, crampons and hiking poles highly recommended.

Summited Jan 19th. Knee deep snow trail breaking the entire distance. Spikes, poles and gaiters essential. Quite strenuous but doable, amazing views from the top!

-32 standing temp - 6.5 hours on trail As always an incredible hike, although this time I didn't stand on top. Temp didn't hit me until I broke past the treeline and got above the huge gully on East side of ridge. gusts and spin drift were hefty. Used crampons and found them to be quite useful for most of the hike, although there was nothing but the final scramble that couldn't be done without. I choose to skip the final 150 m push past the cliff band to the summit as it seemed quite filled in and too sketchy for an Alpine rookie. Next time!

Super Trail. Über mehrere Anstiege kommt man zum Mittelpunkt des Trails, dann heißt es Wert auf gute Stiefel und Standfestigkeit legen. Die Aussicht über das Tal ist einfach bombastisch, es gibt im Sommer/Herbst eine große Wiese zum pausieren kurz vor dem letzten Anstieg.

I just did this trail today. There is a moderate amount of snow in some areas but not so much to prevent one from reaching the summit. I was using micro spikes which appeared to be applicable to this hike at this time of year. There was minimal scrambling with a few areas that did require the use of hands. The summit itself was quite windy and I noticed a drastic change in temperature even when compared with places a short distance from the same. Overall an enjoyable hike with excellent scenery and a perfect one for this time of year. Although there are some places where caution is recommended, I never felt unsafe or hesitant today about reaching the summit.

I did this trail with two of my friends yesterday and it was amazing. It was a tough climb just due to the snow, scrambling and climbing the rocks at the top but I believe if you have experience in hiking , have spikes or crampons you will be fine .. definitely take layers. Thankfully it wAs beautiful up the top- hardly any wind . Loved it . It did take about 3:30-4hrs . Just keep to the right side going up

This was a great trail - new to Alberta from Ontario and found this challenging and liberating. I have now summited 3 different times and found each one is more breath taking than the last. I would say start early and walk the ridge as far as you can to really get the full experience. I summited with my 10 year old son & 8 year old cousin.

It's moderate challenging. I hiked up here in Fall toward the end of October recently, lots of patches of snow here and there. Rocky trails. Steep section when approaching the top. Beautiful view all around and even better when you get to the top. Took me 5 hours easy pace as I checked out many corners for tons of pics. Don't skip this one!

Cool hike and amazing views at top. Great leg burner a lot of elevation gain in a short period of time. We completed this today in three hours. Good scramble down just be careful that you keep to track as it’s easy to lose it.

Lots of uphill on gravel/rocks makes the way down super slippery and stressful. Wasn’t really worth the view to me, but still a challenging hike. There are definitely better trails to choose.

Harder hike - took me an hour 45 to go up. When you see the top and everyone looks like ants, bank right to the ridge, there is a great view (this is the loop portion). Also very windy at the top so hold onto your hat - I learnt that the hard way. When going back down be prepared to slide down the mountain on your hands, butt or both. Stay close to the left/edge as you go down, there are a lot of paths and you wouldn’t want to go down an animal path that all of a sudden ends and you have to climb back up (also learnt that the hard way).

Loved it! Steep from the start, it was a true mountain trail through trees, rocks, and scree. Lots of criss crossing trails. They are not well marked, but they all go up so choose your path and it will get you there. We took the counter-clockwise loop at the top (follow the gps) for incredible views along the cliff. It’s also great scrambling and a quicker route to the summit. We took the scree field down then accidentally got ‘off-trail’ by following a well-marked trail that descended rapidly through forest and exited at Ha Ling parking lot.

Going up was not bad, made it in 1hour. However, there are few paths that could lead you off trail. It may look like a path down but you could get lost easily if you don't have a map or an app to follow. (took longer on the way down)
