Holy cow! Only 2 weeks before you went, We attempted Eagles nest from the Piney Lake side and headed over Game Pass. We went up the west slopes to the saddle between Eagles nest and Powell and saw how time consuming the south ridge was going to be. After we noted that cumulus clouds were building we bailed on eagles nest and headed back and over kneeknocker pass and when we saw the clouds break up we got Powell. We stared at Eagles Nest and knew we will be back there someday to get it! I know exactly what you're talking about when you say "will it ever end"
Thats a hell of an accomplishment and even better when the storms spared you.
