Attempted this hike today. We went clockwise and made it to the first false summit before having to turn around due to the weather. Would have been doable if we were more prepared but half of the group didn’t have poles or warm enough gear (very cold and strong wind at the top). Coming back down was sketchy due to the steep descent covered with snow and ice. However it did not disappoint. Beautiful views from all around. Can’t wait to do this hike in warmer weather!

Amazing scenery, but difficult to climb when snowing and wind blowing

The most beautiful views that you will ever see in that area. I did it anti-clockwise and found it easier than doing clockwise.

Love the views over spray lake. We went counterclockwise and were slow as snow ankle deep. We only reached just below the peak as the wind picked up and it was hard to be sure of our footing even with grippers on the ice, scree, and snow. Also it was a cold day even with sunshine particularly on the ridge. We had not done this hike before and started late

Went up counter clockwise, but recommend going clockwise to avoid the leg burner. Very snowy/windy once above the tree line. Some small cornices developing at the top made navigation look worse than it was. Over all, we finished in 4 hrs and 20 mins, and had a great time. Remember to bring all your layers and wind proof mittens are a must! Happy hiking!

One of my best hike so far, it has little bit of everything..bit of scramble to get on to the ridge, be careful on one exposure...after the weather station, a steep hill to climb not that hard...descending could be challenging, poles do help...

This is an amazing hike!! Views forever!! But a hard scramble to get up there. Definitely go clockwise!! The first bit of scrambling up to the weather station is the hardest and not for those afraid of heights. But after that it’s a pretty easy ridge walk. Took us 5.5 hrs including lots of breaks and stops for pictures. I think this would be a terrible hike if it was windy. You could also just go up counterclockwise to the summit and go back down that same way for a great hike if you didn’t want to do the scramble.

My favourite hike!! we did it COUNTERCLOCKWISE as you start off with little elevation through the forest and they very steep and scrambly with a great view on the valley. as you then go around the ridge you will then finish off walking downhill facing spray lake which was just fantastic. if you do it counterclockwise you will walk UP the scrambly bits (which I find easier than walking down) and towards the end itll just be steep but in steady ground. there are no trees (hence no shade) on top of the ridge for shelter and it got very windy so I'd definitely recommend bringing extra layers
