I ran Black Elk Peak (formerly known as Harney Peak) yesterday from Sylvan Lake in 59:46 round trip. I botched the final turn near the summit (mistakenly continuing on Harney Peak Trail #9 descending to the North), which cost me 2 minutes and then spent about a minute on top taking in the views and snapped some photos. My ascent time was just under 34 and figured I gettng down in 25 would be a slam dunk. Cruised most of it, but then realized it would be real close and had to sprint the final 1/2 mile to dip under.
