Looks easy, but is not so if targeted for a mid-week workout with only 2 hours of daylight available. Reached summit right at sunset after squeezing through a really overgrown lateral for the last half mile. With no desire to return the same way in the dark, I took a chance and plunged down the unfamiliar west ridge, connecting with the fire road exactly at dusk. Ran the rest of the way back.
First snow hike of the year Date Climbed: Jan 23, 2010
A long haul but a great view on the first clear day after the storm. Lots of fresh powder. Saw all kinds of animals tracks but only one actual animal (a deer at the summit). I highly recommend the loop.
