Nice lollipop hike. Took it slow and easy, ridge views spectacular. Always better staying remote and/or off trail where possible so we see very few people.
Normal TH to Rose time is 2.30/40 but this time was 4.00. Lots of snow from mile 1-3 covering trail. Big whaleback humps 1-6’. Used spikes to mile 3 in meadow past waterfall. Ridge walk was quite easy. Combo of talus, snow and thick vegetation. Reno Rim Trail mostly covered in snow. TC Trail clear all the way down. Streams flowing heavy but no problem. Good fun hike!
