Comments
Comments: Great hike, great views. Had summit to ourselves on Osceola. Traverse over to East was all we expected and more. Chimney area not as daunting as we thought it would be, but all the rocks got a little old by the end of this out-and-back.

Car to car was just over 6 hours with a lot of down time soaking up the rays and enjoying the views.
