“A classic, rugged Sun Valley Trail.”— Chris Wandervans
The climb is slow and steady and will cross some technical talus fields. Close to the creek you'll need to keep an eye out for stinging nettle since it tends to lurk along the stream banks. If you don't know what stinging nettle looks like then look it up. The plant is not poisonous, it just hurts for a little while and can cause small bumps.
As the creek gets smaller, the trail gets steeper. The last part has some switchbacks, there will be some huffing and puffing at the end. When you hit the trail junction with Osberg Ridge Trail you'll be at the top.
