Nice little hike. Regardless of whether you do this clockwise or counter clockwise, there will be is a steep section of about 800 vertical, nice workout. The summit sections are steep too, but short. The trail had quite a bit of running water, due to snow melt and recent rain, so was wet in spots. A bit of ice still on the back side between the summit and the pond. Pond was full and water was flowing over the natural "dam", and then down the western slab, very nice.★ ★ ★ ★
