Everything worked out, thanks to a relatively early start. We had a few people start late and two (with waivers) who started early. Despite warning everyone at the start not to follow the track, most deviated near the crux where I saw an easier route existed. Sarbinder, Arush, Shuli, and I went the right way, but most followed the person in front of them (starting with Iris F). . .so we ended up behind most of the group after taking a gentler though longer route. . .Leading hikes is a pain! Even worse, Sarah took an even more straightforward route.
General stats are ~15 miles with 3k ft of elevation gain.
