The trail was rather steep and loose and not easy to make out in places which makes for a great time if you are ready for a challenge! If you are not ready for a real workout, stay home. Make sure you pay attention on the way up to aid in your descent as all three people I know that have summited got disoriented on the way down.
This was my second time up this cool mountain, and I must say much easier than last time (in November '03). The views on the summit were incredible as usual, and the weather held up great.
