    A great mountain. Amazing views in every direction from the summit.

    Straight forward enough until the final few hundred meters up to the summit ridge. They are steep and require care. The sun comes on to the slope mid morning in the spring. So the ice condition the way down may be weaker that on the way up. As we found.

    Enjoy it though well worth the effort.
