Awesome hike. SO difficult (for me) but absolutely worth it. Once you reach the look out point up top you have an incredible view of the surrounding mountains (whetstone, battle axe, etc.) and can see Mt. Jefferson looming in the distance. You can also see the valley down below to your right. A truly beautiful, challenging, entertaining hike. The only downside was we were unable to find any water once we started the hike. We had our filtration system but couldn’t use it. Supposedly if we’d continued just a bit further there may have been a creek, but we’re not sure if it would have been dry because of heat. Overall, great experience! I definitely recommend.
