Matt and me did this as one day push, 55 km (34 miles) in 20.5 hours C2C on September 19. Unfortunately the glacier route was out so we took the scrambles route up Disappointment Peak which was tedious. Snow didn’t help but made everything even more slippery and unstable. On the way down however it seemed to make things easier. Cool Glacier is a serious glacier, lots of crevasses this late in the season. Earlier in the season though the glacier route is a much quicker option and of course way more aesthetic. This can definitely be done in a long day if you are fit and especially if the glacier route is in. We could have probably shaved 1.5-2 hours. Lots if water sources. I must say this was my least favourite of the 5. Ig @twooutofthree
