It is a demanding trail for experienced hikers. Most of the way the path is easy to follow, yet it has some very steep, bushwacking sections. The actual climb is not too difficult, the hardest section is class 4, so no gear is needed if comfortable with that and if later in the season. It is also possible to climb the snowfield, but it would require crampons/ice-axe, unless the snow is soft. I did the hike in 3 days and it was a lot. However, the view from the summit is worth the effort!
