Excellent hike. Definitely one of my favourites. The views are amazing.

I attempted this hike on June 5th. It’s snow free until you hit the small pass just to the north of reads ridge. You’ll definitely need microspikes for that portion. After you get through the small pass there is snow on the ground again from ~2700m up to ~3000m. Thankfully the snow was very solid and easy to walk on. The scramble up to the top was icy, I ended up turning around a bit shy of the summit since I was solo and was nervous about slipping. I’ll be back this summer to hit the peak.
