I forgot to turn on the recorder for my return trip, but it took me about an hour and half to get back. It was an amazing hike with killer views. Don't forget to wear layers as the saddle and the summit were super windy and cold!

Enjoyed this hike and yes it is difficult due to rocky technical terrain and steep ascent and descents. Beautiful vistas!
