This is an outstanding scramble. While not for the faint of heart, it is an excellent route for someone who thinks that mountaineering might be in their future.
The approach leading to Boulderfield Camp (~51/2 mi) is scenic and not challenging. From Boulderfield to the Keyhole and beyond is awesome and much more challenging.
We camped at Boulderfield and summited at first light, it was outstanding. I highly recommend this approach.
The technical difficulty of the route from the Key Hole to the summit increases four times with four sections, each providing a new level of challenge. My 15 year-old son and I made it from Boulderfield camp to the summit in 1hr 40 minutes and we have hundreds of miles of backpacking experience, but no climbing experience. We both summitted without physical mishap (or mental breakdown).
It was outstanding. I recommend this route to anyone who thinks they want to climb mountains, is fit and courageous, but does not have climbing experience.
