Very beautiful ! Backpacked here for the eclipse, stayed on the saddle by the fase summit. Very windy at night. Beautiful alpine forest with wildflowers, and AMAZING views! Awesome place. Scree in the last couple hundred feet from the summit can make it difficult for som people .

Beautiful wildflowers and fantastic mountain scenery. Watch for the trail junction to Bachelor summit - we missed it and added a couple of extra miles towards Buggaboo Ridge, which was lovely too.

Great views from the top, great hike. Although, I don't think it's anywhere near 8 miles. According to USFS it's closer to 4 miles.
