Poured rain the whole time were boxed in by clouds. Can only imagine how great this hike would be on a clear day.

It’s a steep ascent either way. The lower Cramerer trail is longer, I believe. Backcountry camped at spot 35 and then did the rest of the loop to the top the next day. Was a little disappointed that there wasn’t more to see on the way up to the top. A great reward waits for you though!

I went up Long Gap (definitely some good hills and switchbacks) then came down low cammerer. It was long coming down but very gently declining for the most part for 9 or so miles. Trail temps varied a lot- a little snow along the way and snowing too, then warmer and lush in the sun. Took me 8 hours. A nice long day hike. The skies were clear today and the views from the fire tower were gorgeous!

went up the lower cammerer trail, longggg. great views. would say going up the low gap, even though steep and rocky, would be easier with a low grade descent on the lower cammerer
