I just read the details of this effort.
7hrs 00min to the top of the ridge,
7hrs 19min to the summit
11hrs 25min Car to Car
This was done February 23, 2012.
The ridge is OVER 3 miles long, 6,900 Feet elevation gain ! In winter boots, there is some 5.7 on the ridge.
The descent down East Ledges can be real pain in deep snow
Congratulations Ben Horne, this is indeed a large step forward
