This route is truly a stunning experience. The trail always has a mixed bag of weather, being prepared for the changing conditions is best, but I was blessed with mostly favourable weather. Saw lots of smiling faces on the trail. I cached 2L of water at Signal Mountain Trailhead, otherwise I carried all my gear in my pack and so was self-supported. There was little drama this time - no blizzard, no snow to contend with. The winds in the notch were harsh, but that is to be expected. Was hoping to shave more time off my first attempt, and was successful, coming in 30 min faster this time. Best weather I've had this year. This is no slight challenge to take on!
