Write Up:
We picked a good day for this hard hike and had no wind until the bottom when we needed to be cooled down. The steady climb warmed us up right away. The crux was well marked with blue tags to show us the way up and the chimney was also marked to direct us up to the top. The trail was dry for the most part and had a few snow covered sections near the top. We saw a few marmots enjoying the sun at the edge of cliffs. Our lunch spot was looking out towards Mt. Lougheed and before the last climb up to the summit. On the way down we encountered some more snow covered sections and had to butt slide in a few spots. As we came to the dry creek bed, we noticed that someone had left their campfire burning so we stopped to pour some more water on it with some help from another hiking group to ensure it was out entirely.
