Did this over 7/19-7/21 and couldn't ask for better conditions. Wildflowers were exploding, Pass itself was challenging with snow bridges and multiple water crossings but no specialized equipment or skills beyond awareness needed. Brook, Golden and Rainbows were biting on every cast from Muriel, Summit, Upper and Lower Golden Trout Lakes. Would revise difficulty level to hard due to length and elevation gains but will do this trip again in a heartbeat.
