A straightforward climb from the Bloody/Laurel saddle. It's a steep scree slog once you leave the trail but coming down is fun. The trail is great for hiking and normally takes half a day.

It was one of the stranger hikes I've been on for sure! I was enjoying the amazing scenery when I came upon a couple fornicating on the big log near the marina turnoff. The rest of the walk was uneventful but I did come across at least 3 piles of human feces. I was warned about that but didn't believe it. Have respect!
