Nice one! 1 foot of brand new snow on sept 20 to make it harder!
But it worth the efforts when you finally reach the lake :)
So far one on the hardest trail I’ve done as going down was almost as difficult than going up

Amazing steep but clear trail with a super nice but accessible scramble before the lake. Sleeping at the top was an AMAZING experience. Went on June 25 and it was still freezing at night so bring a warm sleeping bag or sleep in the hut!

It's totally worth the climb. By far the hardest hike I have ever done. Would forsure rate this extra hard if possible.

I wouldn't say this is a moderate trail, it is hard. It took us 4 hrs up and 3 back. Bring plenty of water and bug spray.

The trail is marked well, but you are climbing up the whole time. It can be done in a day, but honestly if I were to do it again, I would stay the night and take more time.
