Great hike! Lots of fun. Perfect weather, no wind at Consultation lake where we spent the night, or at the summit. If you're looking for an easy trip try it in two days. We hit the summit in an easy 3.5 hrs from Trail head camp, no need to push as there is plenty of daylight at this time of the year. Lots of water on the trail - just make sure to bring a filter or tabs. However, you'll need to carry all your water from Trail head to the summit as there is no water after Trail head. The rangers make breakfast on the weekends for those at the portal - a nice way to start the hike. I'll do it again for sure!
