Wow, amazing hike with views that are unparalleled. There were times we were happy, there were times we were sad, and the times we almost turned around and didn’t make it. But in the end we’re happy we pressed on and it was so worth it. Did the hike with good hiking boots, no crampons or stick and we were fine. The last 1.5 miles is snow covered, and very slippery... be extremely careful. We def slid down the steep snowy areas, which was fun if you don’t mind your butt getting wet. Also FYI took us 9.4 miles cause we like to take pics. One thing I can say for sure is this hike was RAMMING.
