Hiked the route the weekend before in beautiful weather and had used the FKT to get an idea of how long it would take to hike. Decided to head back up a week later and do it as a FKT attempt run. Weather was much more challenging. There had been 1.5" of rain a few days prior. Started with overcast skies but mud wasn't too bad. I made good time up to the top. Once up on the ridge I got into some deeper mud, a bit of ice, and ripping winds. Fog rolled in and the descent of the scree field was pretty hard to navigate. Overall I made good, consistent progress.
