    Probably one of the coolest day-hikes I've done, and likely the most dangerous, too. My boyfriend and I did this in the dead of winter starting at 3pm after having hiked up to Observation Point. On the way up, those coming down kept saying, "You're not gonna make it!" Luckily, we're both experienced hikers and climbers (though admittedly, perhaps not so experienced as to know we probably shouldn't have done this hike in the winter, with snow on the ground, when it was going to get dark!). That said, we had an amazing time and would definitely do it again. Because of the time of day (and the snow), we were the only ones up there and thus had it completely to ourselves. That said, our simple Yak Traxs saved our asses and I'm not sure we would have continued had we not had them.
