Perhaps I was lucky but I found it pretty easy to stay on use trails most of the way up past Noble Lake. They fade in and out a bit, but with some route finding skills and a map or GPS it seemed pretty simple to stay on track. After reaching the saddle it’s an almost continual climb to the top, only broken up by several false summits! Definitely a leg killer but the views all the way up are well worth it. I actually found the hardest bit to be at the end having to climb out of Noble Creek Canyon on tired legs!
