Wandered up the hike portion of the trail for about a km out of curiosity, lots of postholing, but mostly only to mid calf or knee.

Awesome scramble. Most of it is a simple hike with some over grown trees. Once you get in the scramble, you quickly gain the final Ridge and the fun finally starts. Nothing complicated and very rewarding views!

Muddy trail midway up the mountain (in the forest section), and quite a bit of snow heading towards the top. Good views of the valley!

Great hike with amazing views very quick with very quick (steep) elevation gain. Unfortunately we opted to turn back with only a short distance left to go due to snow and ice on the scree with the final scramble. Having already trudged through waist deep snow once past the ridge line - not only was the scree risky with the snow and ice we were getting pretty tired. This hike would be best avoided now until the snow melts, (unless you only intend to go to the ridge line - which the views from there are still very amazing).

Amazing hike!! Amazing view!! To get to the top you will need climbing gear and experience, I didn't see anyone else the whole day!

A very simple hike to the scrambling portion. Just watch for rocks coming down from scramblers above.

Great hike with amazing view, however you cannot that we saw safely summit the mountain without rock climbing equiptment or ropes and harnesses. Very difficult hike with a lot of elevation.
