I hiked the keyhole route today. Left the TH at 315am. It took me 5hrs to the summit including a 30min break at the keyhole. Then only took me 3.5 hrs down for a round trip of 8.5hrs. Clear night with many stars turned into a cloudy sunrise. snow in the trees was packed down from others so no issue crossing it. windy once above treeline. mix of snow on the trail after the keyhole. ice axe was totally needed. spikes or crampons depending on your comfort level.
