Notes

I was inspired to give this a try yesterday. Having a good day and pacing myself well, I went from the Piute Pass sign (in the campground) to the South Lake trailhead in 10h31. I am fairly certain this direction is fastest: since the trail between Le Conte Canyon and Bishop Pass is mostly unrunnable, it's best to do it uphill.

Splits:

  • South Lake -- 5:55 AM (split, vs. previous FKT)
  • Piute Pass -- 6:58 (1h03, -2)
  • JMT junction -- 8:48 (2h53, -20)
  • Goddard Canyon junction -- 9:26 (3h31, -20)
  • Muir Pass -- 12:15 PM (6h20, -54)
  • Le Conte Canyon -- 1:41 (7h46, -1h14)
  • Bishop Pass -- 3:28 (9h33, -1h31)
  • South Lake -- 4:26 (10h31, -1h44)
