Found better approach to the tenaya slabs than last time. Wore BD Mission LT approach shoes until matthes notch then swapped to old 5.10 moccs till off. Used moccs On cathedral as well. Bushwhacked to cathedral lake trail and then failed to find Vitaliy’s optimal descent route after the slabs off Cathedral Lake. Pretty torched, but psyched to see someone take this sub-5 hours. Between a couple missed turns, backtracking, and pee breaks, definitely wouldn’t be hard to shave a few min. Used 18L rei pack, carried dried mango and 2L water, iphone, sunnies, and Bose Micro Soundlink for between peaks. Wore hot pink split side running shorts and black BD alpenglow hoody.
