The trail was very icy and muddy, leaving areas of unmarked trail. Couldn’t summit as the snow was knee deep at about the 2.5 mile. Also, wind was very strong today.

This was my first summit hike, and still my favorite in the area. Pretty direct route from the Coal Bank Pass. Parking across the street from the restrooms. Good incline up to social rock, and then the hike to the summit becomes a lot more difficult. Stay along the ridge line and be careful on loose talus. Near the top there is a crack that makes the incline more manageable. Amazing views on top.
