Difficult, beautiful, worth it. Great first hike of our trip. Definitely hop in the swing and enjoy the view when you get to the top of the switchback section.

How can a 5 mile hike be so hard? When you climb straight up the double black diamonds of Aspen. After a 1.5 section of switchbacks, the trail straightens out and that's when it gets hard. Near the top people were literally stopping every 20 feet for a breather.
The reward? A party scene at the summit, and a gondola ride to the base.

Good tough hike but well worth the view about half way up.

Much more challenging than expected, but great. A beer at the top and Gondola down makes it all worth it.
