Dickerman is a simple early season hike that begins at 2000 feet at trailhead and rises 3723 feet in about 4.3 miles. There are planty of switchbacks with little elevation that make it somewhat annoying at times, but then opens into some clearings for the remainder of climb at about 4500'. Snow was still encountered in the month of May. It is more difficult of a hike in the winter months, and map and compass knowledge is required, as there are many cliff drop off's and large cornices. Crampons and Ice Axe are recommended in the early season. Snowshoes are a must. There are plenty of false summits, and the last ridge has 2 high points, but the vista is a 360 degree pano of the North Cascades with views of Glacier Peak, Mt Baker, Mt Shuksan, Mt Pugh, Whitehorse, Big Four, and Vesper Peak. Very nice hike.
