MUCH better hike than Highline/Grinnell Overlook and half the distance if you utilize the shuttle to start from Siyeh Bend and end at Sunrift Gorge The view from the pass out to the plains is the equal of the extra bonus part of Grinnell. The downhill and switchbacks from the pass to St Mary is terrific. Skip the Highline, do this instead and have half your day open to hike elsewhere.
