Starts steep and stays that way! Very difficult but the payoff is great. Views abound once above treeline. Still snow at 4500'+ with several steep sections and route-finding necessary. Be prepared with poles &/or ice axe. Ranger station loans bear bins which is recommended: no sightings but lots of skat in meadows. Huckleberries everywhere but not ripe yet. Lake was still 70% covered in ice so no swimming either.
