Be sure to bring your ice axe and be prepared to use it! This is a good quad-burner to get you in shape for a summer of scrambling. You can expect the trip to take around 6 hours depending on our speed, the snow conditions and the weather. If it's nice, we may want to lounge a while at the top and enjoy the great views! (As of this posting (4/29), there is still plenty of snow, but if spring temps finally get here and too much snow melts, we will relocate to another I-90 summit yet to be determined.)
