Moderately physical, not technical. Climbing before the lottery permit system takes effect in the late May allows for a certain opportunity on any given day. However, it is important to check road conditions up to Climbers Bivoac. Into May deep melting snow can be unpassable, even with a 4x4. Call ahead to check road conditions or be prepared for a 1-4 mile hike up to the trail head.
