I think mileage in the route description is wrong. My GPS tracker showed 5.5 mi from the pulloffs at 8800 to Lake Como; the guide says 4 mi.

I showed 17 miles roundtrip from the pulloffs to the base of the Hourglass (zero viz above 13k Sunday); the guide has 13 for the summit from the bottom of the road.

Bill, please double check that mileage :-)

There was no snow when I was up there on Sunday -- but it was moving in and zero visibility above 13k. I'm sure there's snow there now. Probably want your ice axe in the north-facing gulley.

There is no way it is 8.5 miles one way to the base of the hourglass...I'd calibrate your GPS if you can
