Comments
Comments: I saw very few people on the majority of my route (other than going up and down the summit) - only 1 going up and heard some going down, but these were not routes that get a lot of traffic. King Ravine was beautiful as always, but it was my first time trying Great Gully and there are a few tricky spots - probably not a good choice for those afraid of heights or dropoffs. All in all, a spectacular day and a beautiful, but tough, hike (started at 8 and finished at 3:30 with a couple of snack breaks, a stop at the summit, and several pauses while ascending Great Gully). It was very windy at the top and I was glad to have gloves and a hat with my windbreaker.
