Good advice to wait until summer. However, this has been a very mild winter and not much snow yet. The main hazard is the isolation. The trailhead is about 22 miles from the paved highway with the last few miles on poor dirt and that means you need a high clearance vehicle in good shape. Best not to go alone. None of the hike is desperate. It is all class 1; but the first steep section is loose and sucks even in good weather. I last went up in mid-summer starting well after sun down to beat the heat. We cussed that steep section and camped in the saddle. The next day we continued to the top and camped out in a tent right on top. We ran out of water, so I went down to the trail to fetch more from my truck; round trip took me about 2.5 hours.
