Info: All aspects are snowy but the snow is not concerning. The peak is close to the trail from the north and south, and a quick side trip will net you this easy 13er either on your way to or from Pikes.

Info: Basically snow free and what snow there was wasn't deep. Did it in trail runners. No traction/flotation required—even in the late afternoon. The trail from the Playground to Pikes looked a bit snowier; but we didn't have time to check it out firsthand (because we didn't start from the trailhead until 4pm).

Info: No need for snowshoes. Bootpacked all the way. Different story on the way down if you don‘t take the same way up (which I didn‘t) so I was glad to have my snowshoes with me.

Info: Fearsome, intimidating, and frankly terrifying, especially when combined with the majestic "Little Pikes." Bring everything you have and the kitchen sink. Ropes and a hefty trad rack essential. Leave the kids at home for this lung-buster.
