    Too steep for snowshoes. Too soft and deep to not use snowshoes. Again... beautiful but way the ratio of exercise to hiking was way too high for my taste.

    5/5 Stars. Stairmaster level 5.0. It was really tough getting through some of that snow but we kept going and made it :D

    It was challenging (definitely not for beginners) but awesome snowshoe trip without snowshoes! We made it to the top despite the exhaustingly deep snow. Great day, Oscar! Thank you!

    Hello folks,
    Congratulations on making it to the top! I'm curious what route did you take? Earlier today, I followed Bob Spirko's GPS track and found bushwhacking to be one of the most brutal I've ever experienced. I lost my glasses in the thick bush and turned back before reaching the top. On the way back, I found a much easier way[masked]m on climber's left. I'm wondering which route did you take and if you recommend it.
