Double traverse - Idyllwild start variation.

Start from Idyllwild Deer Springs trailhead at 7:25pm on 4/30/2021

reached summit of San Jacinto peak at 11:11pm

reached skyline TH at 4:44am on 5/1/2021

reached second summit at 2:13pm 

arrived at deer springs TH at 4:47pm for roundtrip time of 22h22m

note: this attempt was approached as unsupported but water fountains in Palm Springs were turned off, so we got our water at base of Skyline trail from Hyatt hotel water fountain in hotel lobby. Other water source was at ranger station in Long Valley.

also - we encountered Rob Manley’s group doing the reverse route, possibly worth differentiating the routes as they are inherently different
