A good stiff climb to the ridge. Starts mellow in the bottom of the drainage, then gets steep as it rises to the saddle. The reroutes over the past few summers to add switchbacks have made this 98% ridable. Nice trail. Great views off of the ridge at the top. Popular loop to shuttle from Mike Harris.

      Quite a lot of snow on the upper 1/2 mile before the ridge. Give it another 1-2 weeks.
