The trail to the top of Mount Rose, #814, doesn't play around...3500 feet of gain in 3 miles. The trailhead is on the road to Staircase along Lake Cushman. After two miles, the trail splits. You have two choices to reach the summit. Makes for a nice loop. Near the top (left trail only), you walk through burned trees from a recent forest fire. To get the best view, you have to climb up a rock at the top and look down on Lake Cushman.

Yep ... that's Ellinor over there. Here's the profile from a little closer when I was there last year.

Ellinor is the peak on the left

I've got Mount Rose on my list. After your TR, I'm gonna try and hit that one this year instead of putting it off. Looks like a great hike.

Mount Rose is awesome, a good work out without the crowds and some nice forest on the right summit fork.

Yea thanks for the report.
