Write Up:
From the trailhead it took us 7 hours to reach Snowshoe Lake, due mainly to the Co- ordinator not being accustomed to the weight of a multi-day pack. Good campsites at the lake. The next morning we started early enabling us to summit in 2.5 hours of mostly shady scrambling. Since we were spending another night at the lake, we spent a good while on the summit and at other scenic spots on the way back to the lake. After a swim in the lake, everyone took a nap before supper. The trip back to the trailhead the next day only took 4.5 hours and was a much more pleasant experience. This route would be hard or dangerous if the rock slabs you must ascend and descend were wet.
