Comments
Comments: Hadn’t done this loop hike since 1996. Skies were completely overcast but no rain so we took a chance and climbed the north slide. It has changed significantly since the last time - lots more loose rocks and scree and no more smooth ledges in the upper part. Scrambles on fours required in a few spots with a 45+ degree angle. Group ahead of us sent a rock tumbling down just missing us. Halfway up found a short bypass trail on the left. One thing that hasn't changed is the 1200 foot climb in half a mile. Hike across ridge was a welcome change. South slide as before with a long unstable gravel scree area. Seemed to have grown in more since 1996. Great views on both slides. Once at the bottom of the south slide the trail is great – smooth and wide. We made good time here. Overall only a couple short wet and muddy spots. Ice and snow are gone. Hike completed in slightly under the 7 hrs book time. Total miles 11.29, elevation gain 3237.
