This exceptionally beautiful blue lake, on a par with Loomis, demands a price in the form of an exposed scramble. Nevertheless, on any summer weekend you'll see anglers lumbered with tackle box and rod struggling up the "bad step", their lives literally hanging by a thread. Despite a chain, nervous walkers will appreciate the security of a safety rope; 30 m of 7 mm perlon should be sufficient. Although the headwall is clearly exciting, the rest of the route along logging road is tedious, best tackled by bike.
