Actually, I got to second that. I did a 25 hour car to car up Avi gulch last May with an overnight at Helen Lake. You know with the weight of gear for an overnight which includes the larger and heavier pack just to carry the gear one would move much fast without it. Actual time moving up (TH to Summit) was about 9.5 hours for us and that was with a heavy pack to Helen Lake. Drop that weight and no doubt I drop at least an hour or more off the accent time (respecting conditions).
I figure if I’m ever going to go up again, light & fast. Period. That mountain at least avi gulch would be more fun as an all day outing.
