Trail can be tough to find on the way up between 11,500 to 12,500 due to some loose rock areas that overlap the trail. The trail can also be tough to find on occasion from the gullies to the summit. Keep a careful eye out for cairns throughout the trip to find a safe way up and not descend too far down post summit. Beautiful hike but be ready for a long day. The last mile and a half after getting on the ridgeline took us 2 hours with the down climb in this area taking close to as much time as going up.
