With Chris—more of a real hike than we thought. Fun! Would do with trekking poles next time.

in the heat this hike was very hard because there is no shade. The hike is brutally steep and the trail is quite washed out.

Really tough start off the first 3/4 miles. Nothing but sand and screw chutes. However the last 300 ft is the best & technical climbing on solid rock.

Some sketchy areas, good for a cold weather hike.

Ascent towards top portion was pretty technical! Harder than it looks.

This hike was brutal but the views at the top were beautiful, and we got to listen to a Red Rocks concert along the way.

Fun hike. Did it at night without a flashlight and in the fog and still was able to follow trail. 99% dry. A little bit of tracked snow.

Very slippery from all the snow melt. I go very slow on the way down but can get up to the top in about 50 min. Scrambling at top.

Mostly dry. Some snow near the 3/4 mark.

Great trail and conditions. Parking is limited. Old power line down on trail. I think/hope it is not powered.

Steep and muddy at the start
Snowing and wet at the top
Real challenge to make it through this one today

More difficult than expected. So glad I brought poles! Didn't have time for summit.

Came face to face with rattle snake at about 3/4 from the trailhead. Forced to traverse half a mile around. Overall beautiful (exertional) hike.

Great hike. Trail is steep and noticeably slick during descent. Fog limited views from the summit.

was tough. did it with Cheryl Lawler and Vivek Yadav and Dodd Mcdonell this was a whole lotta UP.

Took Bailey, couldn’t make it to the end because it was too steep for her to climb.

Scramble at the end is pretty tough for dogs to get up, but doable (if you can lift them up a couple sections)

Good hike with many sharp uphills. Scrambling is very doable.

Hard on the way up and the way down but in very different ways. Great views.
