The hike to Cliff can be anything from a nightmare to a walk in the park; it all depends when you go. The best time is in late winter or early spring. That's when all the blowdown is covered in deep snow and the accumulation on the summit allows you to see neerly all around. At any other time of the year this hike is likely to rate 10/10 on the difficulty scale and the view might be an F. I like to do this one as a loop starting from UpHill lean-to, over Cliff and out towards Flowed Lands.
