Up 1st Arete/Down NE Ridge

3.16 miles/2,423 vert./1:04:43 (42:17 up)/avg. HR 151  Garmin Data

Great hike/run today, how could it not be when it is 67 degrees?  Even busted out the shorts for the first time in months which felt really great.  The price of the warmth though is really messy snow, making for some poor footing and slow going at times, as there was just really no traction much of the way, even with Microspikes, it was so loose and slushy.  Certainly no crowds on this route, just passed one hiker near the summit and saw a few people near Amphitheater.  Love it.
