Snow free the entire way. Yay!
After a shoe snafu 2 weeks ago on my other attempt, this was a nice bone to pick.
Hike up to black lake was a breeze. Not many people past mills which was pleasant. Past black lake is a trail that eventually fades into a bunch of random ones, that all end at some point. Point and shoot your path from there basically.
Some faint trails exist up the loose talus slope, but you're best off sticking to the bigger, more stable rock when you can.
Some spots are really really loose.
The views in the upper basin are stunning in every direction. Seriously. Once at the saddle its pretty quick and easy to gain the summit. Boulder hopping fun!
