Ascent Trip Report

Got a later then expected start, arriving at the Loj parking area around 7am. Got dressed and monkeyed around with my MSR's, taking my time all the way. Finally got signed in at the trail register at 7:49, again taking my sweet time. Neil caught up to me just as I was snapping some pictures at Indian Pass Brook, informing me that RandomScooter said that we should have this hike done in 4 hours! I let him lead, and we marched along toward Street and Nye. Normally I hike solo, so it was great to have someone to hike along with. The herd path is well defined for most of the going, except for a few blown in areas towards the top. We bagged Street, and took the short jaunt to the lookout. With all the falling and blowing snow, there was no view to be had on this day (didn't bother me at all). We descended quickly to the junction, dropped packs, and headed in the direction of Nye. A whole 9 minutes it took us to gain the summit, and a mere 7 minutes to return! In full peakbagging mode, we slid down the steep spots and crawled under a half-dozen or so blowdowns. We arrived at the trail register and signed out. 4 hours 49 minutes for Neil, 5 hours 9 minutes for myself. A great day of hiking was had. Thanks to Neil for letting me tag along.
