Notes: It took a little longer because of some route finding problems on the way down.. getting lost slowed us a bit, so the round trip time from saddle to peak was 4.5 hours, with an hour at the top, but still, pretty brutal route finding both ways. Not to mention the three hours up and two hours down that ridiculous east slope had us going.. definitely the longest, most brutal day of any of the elks, even capitol or snowmass, but thats with the hike in to those, ya know?
