This hike is steep--just like the name of the mountain (and off-trail)! The summit provides great views of Longs Peak and the peaks of the Continental Divide
Bring two liters of water, snacks, rain gear, extra layers of clothing, hat, gloves, sunscreen, sunglasses and hiking boots. Bring a Rocky Mountain National Park pass or money to contribute to entrance fees. Additionally, bring money to chip in for gas for the driver.

To meet the prerequisite for A-D hikes, you must have completed without difficulty a YMCA of the Rockies (Hikemaster-lead) hike of no more than two grades lower within two weeks before the hike. This means a C hike is the prerequisite for an A hike*; a D hike is a prerequisite for B hike; an E hike is a prerequisite for a C hike, and an F hike meets the requirements for D Hike.
Hikes graded A-D must have three guests, and hikes graded E-H must have two guests to go. This is for safety reasons. Hikes will be canceled if too few guests sign up.
A variety of circumstances may change the schedule of this hike. It is imperative that all hikers check in at the Mountain Center hiking desk (Base Camp) no later than 5 pm the day before the hike. Please bring your Y lodge room number or cabin name at that time.
