Man oh man! Hell of a trail! 4K ft to 10k ft elevation change was intense. 70 pound packs for all 4 of us we had no idea what we were in for. Then after camping the night at the top the next day we set out for granite pass and as we went through granite basin, thunder, lightning, hail... it turned to a nightmare real quick. Needless to say We never made it over the pass. And this hike I went on was 4 years ago around June. I will be attempting again this summer. Wish me luck.
