The top of Mueller Ridge yielded beautiful views of the glaciers and small avalanches in the valley behind the ridge. The first 1700 feet of climb up to Sealy tarns is a set of groomed stairs (2200 in all) that let you quickly gain elevation....More
We did the hike today. It is the hardest hike we have ever done and we have done many, including Grand Canyon to the bottom and back in one day, as well as many hikes in Canadian Rockies.
