The 4 of us climbed Mt Yale on Saturday. We started right on time at 7:00am and got to the summit at 12:49pm or just under 6 hours. This east ridge route was about 5.25 miles and was more difficult on the ridge than anticipated. I thought it would be more of a walk up ridge but it turned out to be quit scrambly. We stayed on the summit less than a half hour and made it back to the TH at 4:40pm. The total trip took 9 hours and 40 minutes.

It was a great day but hard on the body since it's 5,000 feet of vertical gain.


Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
