Ascent Trip Report

The trail is great (and scenic) below treeline, but once above treeline, it breaks into numerous use trails. That said, they all ascend, and if off-trail, the loose rocky terrain isn't much different from the trail anyway. The summit is well worth the effort though, with really incredible views.
