Sketchy scree towards the top but definitely worth it!! Beautiful views. Saw a bear.

This hike was definitely not one I’d do again or recommend. Virtually no trail the entire time and because of the recent rain so many mosquitoes and spider webs. The path was extremely hard to follow even with all trails. Also, we heard and watched a pretty big rock slide. Pretty uneasy as most of the trail was up a scramble. The views were incredible but there were probably other trails that gets the same views.

Definitely an intense day hike. Both physically and visually. Well worth the effort!!

This hike is tough! The views are awesome but 2+ miles of rock field is exhausting. Also the trail is non-existent even outside of the rock fields. I would recommend just going around lost lake and then up a bit part way through the fields - the whole way is not quite worth it, in my opinion!

Lots of snow still up high, and lots of talus/scree hopping. Some of this gets loose, steep and sketchy on the route I chose. Up high, I followed a previous hikers AllTrails gps map, but had to deviate due to snow. My route only got to the ridge that you would scramble up to get to the summit. It was getting late in the day, I was alone, and a little scared of the loose talus ridge climb, so I bailed, to return another day!
