Went up to Russet Lake on Oct 20th and I must say on the top there were some incredible views! Went through Singing Pass up to Russet Lake and then the same way down, in total around 29km hike with 1100 meter elevation gained. Only reason this hike doesn't get 5 stars was the fact that most of the hike you'll be deep in the forest with no real viewing points (last kilometer or two are stunning thought). However, it was all worth it getting to the top! Took about 3.5-4 hours up, stayed there for roughly 1-1.5 and then 3 hours down.
You will let your feet and legs know you're alive if you do it in one day like us :)
