We hiked this Jan 5th. Early start 7:00am with the knowledge that it’s best to be heading back down around noontime. No micro spikes were needed, very packed. (But we carried them). Mild temps (30’s) and no wind. That is until we neared the summit. The last 1,000 ft plus is a boulder field and navigation through it, not so easy. With all trails we could see where we wanted to get to but no obvious trail to be had. Picked our way through carefully and just on the north side, the winds picked up to a strong 40-60 mph gusts. Beautiful views of the diamond on Longs but, a hasty summit, as we were anxious to get out of the wind. Slow picking our way down but, once at the chasm junction, every thing was mellow again. Great day to get on top of this serious 13,000er.
