I did this today and very quiet. The hike started from Consolation Lake trail head. You just have to branch up to the trail which you can see clearly from Consolation Lake trail. It will take you to loose rocks and screes and steep. However nothing is technical. Overall, it was a good and short hike for us.

Steep scramble up and the scree skiing down is a lot of fun! Windy at the top.

This is not a hike. Almost the entire thing is a scramble up loose rocks (which is like swimming in a pile of rocky quicksand up the mountain). After the rock pile, you have to climb up a gulch that is very slick and requires all four limbs. It was very fun, but definitely dangerous. Do not do this climb if it is calling for rain!! Gorgeous view of lake moraine at the top!

This is not a moderate hike. It is hard / very hard. It is a straight up scramble where some sections have 99% grade... the first half of the scramble is loose rocks so it’s hard to get footing and second half of the scramble is more steep but better footing.

All of that said! Was a lot of fun and it’s doable. The view is worth it so push through if your reading this after you already started.
