Very tough climb and I get a bit uneasy on the top, but definitely worth it. Not for the faint of heart, though.

Amazing views all along the trail and even more spectacular from the top! Not for those phobic of heights. Chimney climb at summit is vertical climb up rock face--careful to not climb too closely behind another person--lots of falling rocks. Well worth the views! Hiking poles helped a lot--recommend to take.

An absolute Gem of a Hike! the trail is very easy to hike all the way up to the Black Tusk itself. The Trail is wide, smooth, and very well marked. We slept overnight at Taylor Meadows, after we made the summit. There was quite a bit of snow near the top. wish i had micro spikes for some sections. Bring a climbing helmet if you plan to climb the final chimney to the true summit. Like i said before the whole trail is easy in terrain except for the last climb to the summit.

Spectacular. Also some scrambling near the top. Glaciers, extinct volcanoes and glacial lakes as far as you can see.
