Courtney Pace reports below doing Gannett via Wells Creek in a speedy 11h14m20s car-to-car (5h43m ascent), September 20, 2014. Going late in the season, Pace was able to jump across Wells Creek, rather than doing the sketchy solo.
Did Gannett today 9-20-14 via Well's Creek both ways in 11:14:20
1:47 to bridge
2:22 to cleft
Was able to do 'leap of faith' at the Cleft rather than the scary solo I did a few years back. Only doable late in the year. Encountered fresh snow on the 5th class to gain summit ridge. I knew there was no chance I was going to come close to Tony's time. But I thought I would be close to yours. Took approach shoes strapped to my bag and switched out after the trail portion. Was glad to have both pairs. Incredible route!
