Really tough start, the ascent almost seems endless. Especially at the exposed ridge near the peak. But the view of Paradise Valley was very well worth it. Otherwise the hike brought you through many varied terrains and opportunities for wildlife. Trail was very well marked with a few minor detours due to remaining snow drifts.
