The trail is a challenging enough workout, steep midway. I was fortunate enough for a friend to tell me to “keep to the right “. The slabs in the upper area can be confusing and easy to get lost. It lacks big enough cairns. They were ‘baby cairns’, a couple of stones here and there. There were very few and faded blazers also. It’s easy to miss the trail markers for the turn to Stairs Col trail as well, if you’re heading that way. Once at the top, the views are worthy. Starting the descent is also confusing without cairns to guide you. Otherwise it’s a pretty good trail for a moderate hike. Keep to the right!
