Strenous Hike, Great Views A very difficult hike over the caps. It is steep at times, the rocks are rugged and the trail demanding. There are places where treking poles are of no use mostly because of the steepness or the numerous holes between the boulders. It could be a great winter trip if there were access to the trailhead.

Really tough hike, but I recommend it for sure! Summit is so cold! I hiked it in June and there was still snow at the top!
