“An off-trail route to summit Cloud Peak with an elevation gain of over 3,000 ft, topping out at 13,200 ft.”— Brian Sheets
Along the way, enjoy lots of glacier-fed water. Be prepared for lots of scrambling and boulder-hopping. No ropes are needed, but the route does pass some sheer cliffs along the way.
Expect weather changes (hail, snow, rain, wind, fog, clouds, and of course blue sky and sun) along the way. It's pretty hard to get lost, even though it's not much of a trail. Just stay between the drop-offs on either side and work your way up the boulders to the summit and 360-degrees of phenomenal views!
