Ascent Trip ReportDistances are approximate. GPS tracks in the narrow canyon can be off by quite a bit, and even after "cleaning" them up, can be misleading.
This was a great trip with a very fit group. Cloud cover at the top reduced visibility to not much more than 20 yards or so. Fortunately, no rain, but plenty of wind.
