have not been there this year but the hike is not bad at all. If you have some microspikes or something for your boots, use them if there has not been any new snow. It gets icey as hell on the boot pack. The run from subpeak is steep and long vert. Great place but keep your speed when your traversing back around from the backside of the mountain because it is a skiers mtn with traverses that have some uphill spots on them.
