Really long and tough. With two collegiate track athletes it took us 10 hours. The ridge line hike is actually repeated ups and downs with the last push a 700’ gain at about 30•. Exhausting at the 10 mile mark at 10000’ elevation. Bring lots of water. There’s none at the top. Beautiful views. No wildlife. 55000 steps.
