A beautiful mountain with fantastic views of the northern Elk Mountains. The geology seems similiar to that of the Snowmass/Capitol region but much more forgiving. My dog is named after this mountain so it was a high priority for me. Also on this trip was my 15 year old niece, Liesel, and my other dog Raymond.
Always a beautiful climb! Hike from trailhead to Thomas lakes is long. After that things get steeper. Didn't make trek to west summit (the 2 are within 10 feet of each other) Great views towards Aspen and Marble. Can't wait to do a winter ascent someday.
