Ascent Trip ReportNortheast Ridge trail. Some snow above the treeline; microspikes came through but not necessary. Snowed on us up there -- mid-June! 7:50 to go just over 9 miles roundtrip due to high altitude. Trail is steep but very straightforward. No high clearance vehicle required to reach this trailhead. See 14ers.com for full route and reports.
