did this hike today. what a beautiful day to be out there. the road to the trailhead is doable with any SUV or truck. The hike itself isn't too technical until the last few hundred feet to the too. there was some snow up top from last night that made it a little sketchy but otherwise not bad. also, I chose the wrong path and found myself rockclimbing - it was a bit of a rush but in hindsight I should have backtracked my steps. tip: once you get over the loose shale, remember to stay to the right and look for 4 yellow/black markers on the rock.

This is a lung-buster, but worth the effort. The basin half-way up is gorgeous. Definitely some route finding on the top third of the route, but straight forward scrambling. I would not bring my dog on the upper half, although some people did.

Hardest Hike I've ever done. Approximately 5000' of gain in 5km...Views are out of this world or rather top of the world...bring water ...lots . There is running water to fill up. Approach and decent from the peak are intense. Basically rock climbing last few moments. Trail is well marked but can easily be lost. Hike up to the saddle is probably the hardest part. Hike has everything .

Great all day hike. There were a few spots where the trail disappears, but just keep going up and you'll find it again. Bring lots of water and food. The views at the top are incredible, so go on a clear day when it's not too hot. Definitely not an easy hike though - not for beginners or anyone who has serious health issues. The first part is uphill, through forest and rock. Then there's a rock hill, and then you're back through forest for a bit. Once you hit the shale, you're almost there - but be careful. Pay attention! You can easily slip. The last bit you'll be almost rock climbing right up - again, pay attention and go slow. Stay to the right. All in all, definitely worth it! I will go again!

A rite-of-passage for Kootenay locals! Relatively short in kilometres but is quite steep. The majority of the hike is straight up and on the descent - straight down so bring some hiking poles! The road in is narrow and rough in spots so a high clearance vehicle is certainly required This is definitely a day hike so be prepared with layers, food, solid hiking boots and lots of sunscreen! Go on a day where there’s minimal cloud cover to see the view from the summit!

The All Trails map includes an 8-km walk up (about 100 meters of elevation) the forestry road in the total distance; we walked it as our vehicle wasn’t a 4x4 and the road definitely requires one. But if you have the right wheels you can drive right up to the bottom of the trail significantly reducing the overall distance. The actual hiking trail is quite steep - 60% incline for much of it, so it earns its difficult rating. Hour plus push thru the trees to the first boulder field, then another 20-30 mins to the second boulder field. Beyond that you start to come out of the trees, into the high alpine - including a small larch forest right at the tarn. The trail passes the tarn on the left and continues across a long scree fall winding upwards behind the peak up to the ridge and the summit ascent is from the back side. This section is a serious uphill slog and takes about another two plus hours. The down is also challenging, quite steep with a lot of loose slate even in the trees. This hike will test you, especially if you have to hike the 8-km’s back down the forestry road.
