Finding the hike at first is a bit hard, but it is right after the creek crossing... we missed it the first time. Then begins about 2 hours of an incredibly long and steep climb that is exhausting. After that you take a unobtrusive right which takes you to the basin. Then climb all the way straight up the basin to the end and then climb up on the skree toward a waterfall that is around 2 o’clock in your vision if you are facing the middle of the upper basin from around the small tarn. Scramble up and follow the markers and the faintly visible trail up to the top. Then you get to the top and it is all worth it.
