After the failed early May attempt the gate was opened back on June 21 and I started at the trailhead. There was not much snow left but there were some snowfields and plenty of creeks running well. The trek ended up to be about 13.5 miles and 4500 feet or so. The trail is great up to Lost Lake but then look out because there is obnoxious bushwhacking through uncountable dead and downed trees, cob webs galore, mosquitos aplenty and spiders on the rock up to the base of the final ascent. The last 0.3 miles requires about 1000 feet of gain to the summit. I went up and over a lot of rck on the way up and tried returning more through the trees. Slow and demoralizing at times. I have posted a gpx at listsofjohn.
