A fun scramble up from the lake. Definitely not a popular peak, as I was alone from the lake to summit to lake, even on a holiday weekend. Weather wasn't the best and it started to rain/sleet on me just below the summit, but still the scenery was just stellar.
Awesome peak! I was really impressed! I love those lower elevation summits where there are still taller mountains around you. This was perfect for me, great weather, I loved it. 8 hours car to car w/ 1 hr 20 min on top. Trip report here.
The route quality was okay, but had great views of the Stuart Range. The trail was in good condition, a little muddy. Snow on the upper slopes making my trekking poles handy. A bit of loose rock on the route making my rating go down to a 2/5 (so so) in terms of quality.
