Fairly new to all this, (city dweller) now 61. Great hike. Needed to start earlier, got to over 80°. Made it 2.5 miles before our water (Turbo and I) was depleted. We'll go better prepared on our next attempt to the peak. Still beautiful and good for my soul!

Nice, challenging day hike. The first .75 miles is real steep and will get your blood pumping but it levels out after that, then alternates on off. The altitude gain is real and the last mile to the top was a real struggle but the views are worth it and the rock scrambling at the top is fun. Be sure to set out early ish - it took me about 3.5 hours, not including break for lunch, and 95% of the hike is not shaded.
