How about a full winter route of Camp muir in 6.5 hours? No skis, no snowshoes, just me and my two own feet. Not too hot not too cold! Snowshoes may have helped but I had my crampons and they worked fine. Clouds were coming in around Moon Rocks. Very hard from there on up. Wind started to pick up and had a couple cold finger tips up at Camp Muir. Had to have been teens up at Muir at least! Light winds and snow started to come down. It was nice to get up there but we only stayed for about 10 minutes. Less than 2 hours coming down! We put it in overdrive! Longmire gate closes at 7 on weekends so we made it.
Overall a good, hard push and rewarding!

Of course I'm trying to look happy!

It was nice up there! Lots of snow piled up!

The crew looking happy as can be!
