solo, 2:05 to the summit from camp, 3:40 round trip. 4:40 out to car. The band was iced up in mid August. Cold for this time of year I though, the summit ridge is so west facing and winds blow off of a glacier on the other side of the col. Even scree was frozen up high. The hand line is in great shape as of 2012. Took all of 10 secs to do the rock band with it. Took no gear on the trip, just shoes and poles. Mosquitoes are not bad from mid August on. There is a damn boat in Devon Lake!!! heli'ed in?
