Easy scramble to fantastic views. The listed rating is 3-1; I think the first number may be too high and the second too low. Although it may only be a T1 scramble when the snow is gone, there will still be plenty of snow at this date after a heavy snow winter. However, there should be good flowers wherever the snow has melted. It's a fairly long drive to this trip, but the views are really worth it.
