This is a full, 10+ hour day at a continuous pace.  Breaks will be brief and generally at the summits, where the views are.  Goal will be to arrive 4-5p at Sherpa's / Santo’s for a recovery meal.

I will cache water at about the mid-point, but we all should start with a minimum of 2 liters.

Nutrition/hydration should be packed where you can access while hiking and replenish at breaks.

Shuttle volunteer - we will leave 2 cars at S. Mesa TH. We will need 1 car to meet us there @5a and shuttle us to Goat TH.  All others will meet us at Goat and leave their cars there.
