Started from the Denny Creek Trailhead at 5:30am. Parking lot is totally paved and right off the road. Starts off steep and pretty much stays that way. At 12k feet  just out of the trees (over 3 miles into the hike) I stopped for 15 minutes to break. Kept going up super steep switchbacks to the saddle. At the saddle is the fun scramble to the summit. You can stay on the right for only class 2 but if you’re like me you get off route anyways and end up on the class 3 bits. Met a lovely couple at the top and hiked all the way down together. A very beautiful day!
