Beautiful, difficult hike. You’re climbing the whole time, but the view up top is pretty beautiful. We got to watch snow fall onto the mountains below, which was pretty spectacular. We’ll definitely be coming back!

All down (or up) depending on direction. Painful down to end a 15 mile day... Not much to look at.

Rough hike up with the elevation. One beautiful viewpoint near the top. I could've sat there all day.
