Robert,



You can make your URLs into links which will allow people to simply click on them instead of having to cut and paste. To do so, simply edit the section, and place the following HTML tags on either side:

THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO WATER SOURCE along this hike. You would need to pack enough water for a full day of strenuous hiking.

A set of poles is a good idea for the decent. I used mine on the decent and feel I saved myself some considerable time on the steep descent from the summit to the saddle.

A quick addition: you can self-permit at the East Fork trail head. No need to order them in advance.

I climbed the North Ridge on 9/22/14, and after you leave the stream at the bottom, there was way more bushwacking up-hill than I realized I was taking on. It took me 9 hours to climb to the top, and September was the wrong time of year to have to wear pants and a sweatshirt to not get torn to pieces. The South side down was very easy though, with a clear trail the entire way.

I think 7200 ft. of gain from Heaton is a stretch. Not quite sure how you arrived at that number.
Here's my version-
Parking lot- 2000 ft.
Summit- 8007 ft.
That would make about 6000 ft. of gain. Add in maybe 350-400 ft. for the up-down of the intermediate ridgeline "bumps" and the grand total would be closer to 6400 ft. approx.

OK, just read the route page. (did not include the additional gain on descent).
It seems that you're allowing 600 ft. for the intermediate ups-downs while I thought it may be closer to 400 ft.
6800 ft. are the numbers I come up with RT.
