Camped at the Southwest Trail, plenty of camping nearby. Got on the trail at 4 am due to certainty of cloudiness by 10 am. Made it up to the Pointy Rock at 12,300 and turned around there. The trail was much steeper and rocky that I expected. Once on the right turn at the end of the meadow, the trail went straight up a boulder field for a long way. The trail construction was actually excellent, but stair step routes are not for me. I will not attempt this route again, I will look into the longer Mt. Massive Trail next time.
