The description of the access to trail canyon is accurate.
We took the East Ridge route, when taking this route you will need to do some side-hilling to avoid giving back altitude, so resist the urge to run the ridge. There was some snow above the false summit and reports from a day earlier said that post holing was a problem, we found good snow well past noon but it was well below freezing at the camp the night before.
Believe it or not there was NO WIND on the summit, a glorious day.
Descended the standard route, the scree had allot of medium sized boulders which precluded making good time.
DO NOT expect any services within 50 miles of this peak.
