We only made it just beyond the split in the trail as a snow storm was moving in and visibility was getting bad. The trail is easy to find up to were the trail divides after that locating the trail becomes a bit of a challenge, will probably give this one another try when the weather is better.

Hiked this on December 28th. Microspikes and poles highly recommended. We weren’t able to make it all the way up due to avalanche risk, but we still made it up quite far

beautiful hike but hard. very steep, we climbed 414m. we had snow shoes so didn’t go all the way since to top was really rocky and required a scramble. would go again but start much earlier.

Gorgeous views of Spray Lakes for the majority of the hike! We had to cut the hike short by a couple hundred meters as the snow became too deep. Definitely going to add this one to the list to do again in the summer!

To much snow to continue to Sparrow didn’t have the snow shoes on us - so we went up Reads instead! Great day! Not to windy not icy great Sunday hike - will be back to do the full route.
