Looking for a way to calculate the fastest and shortest distance between 50 mountains to try to find a way to break a record in climbing all of them ... No, not the state highpoints but a different one ... Is there a google tool or another tool to do this?

I turned back at the entrance of the coloir because I'm not sure if I can make it safe down by myself at the first move.
A friend and a 44er both turned back in the middle part, way too many loose rocks.
A 48er completed the summit!
The SW coloir approach is a spectacular trip in itself. Constant view and lakes, unbelievable terrain, just hike to the sky top glacier is 110% worth it.
However i don't think an 'agile dog' can make it and condition changed with many loose rocks. And the approach is still very steep and exposed, too much risk for me to take. My fried kicked off a night stand sized rock and you just don't know which ones you can trust.
Next time I'll probably go with guidesI from the north side, this trip has been phenomenal.
