Car to car in 8 hours, practically ran back. Amazing weather.
The wind turned this otherwise tame route into a real challenge. I tried to wait it out (nearly couldn't find my tent in the dusk later because of it) but ended up plunging ahead into a lenticular cloud from Pikers Peak.
From the mellow approach, to the great campsites on the shoulder, to the opportunity to kick your first steps on the South Spur Headwall, I'm not sure there's a better place to practice the basics of snow climbing.
Car to car in 9 hours. Weather was perfect.
