Did this Saturday (5/23) and there was still a lot of snow and ice at the top. Highly recommend bringing crampons just in case! It’s doable without, but really slow going and frustrating. Love this hike so much, it’s the perfect amount of challenging and will make your butt hurt. Amazing view at the top.

Great challenging hike, but had to turn back due to ice/slippery conditions otw to the summit (near camp area). Will definitely try again towards the end of summer with hopefully better conditions!

Amazing views at the top but highly suggest walking sticks. There was snow and ice at the top but can be done without spikes. Must try hike!

This is the second mountain I’ve climbed in the Whites and I can’t imagine the views get much better than this. This is one of those summits where you lose your breath in disbelief at the top. The hike itself however isn’t a walk in the park. For one, hiking this in the Spring was not easy for the first 2 miles. The trail was hard to see, there was water and mud all over the place, and the trail markers were not marked well. My girlfriend and I actually got pretty discouraged at first because finding the trail was becoming way too challenging. My guess is that this is a seasonal thing and the trail is typically easier to see. At about 2.5 miles the trail launches into a steep incline and you pick up a ton of elevation until you hit the top. The distance of this trail is apparently up for some debate, but the signage on trail adds up to 8.2 miles from the parking lot to the peak and back. Either way you’ll feel this one afterward!
