The trail was an out and back trail and the out portion was basically up up up and more up.
This is an ore crusher.
From here things got a little easier up to the pass.
It looks like it would be a great cabin. And there is plenty to explore up here.
That is Raven Glacier which was making the windy pass very very cold.
We had a quick snack and turned around.
The way down we took a slightly different trail which was less steep but had a lot of rock fields we had to cross which were a little hard on the feet.
