Ak, yep. started from the end of the road. we hit the first big mtn on the left once you get into the drainage. a little less than 3 miles on flats carrying all equipment, then about 2-3 climbing up. we saw some other folks who went a little further on the flats and climbed a more open area. our woodsy route looked a little less strenuous, but it was still a burner of a climb.

we started at 7:15am and got to the top about 1:30pm. we rested a few times for probably a combined time of about 30 minutes. 5hrs or so to the top including switching over gear (split, board, crampons). we didn’t summit either, as you can see in one of the pics. i would figure another solid half hour to do that.
