Made it to the top in about 2 hours and 40 minutes. As others have said, this is definitely a great conditioning hike. I did the first mile or so trying to catch up with someone else who eventually turned around. Was also passed by an APS truck on the way up, and a Tacoma on the way down. A bit of snow and yellow leaves at the higher reaches. The views from the top were probably some of the best I've ever seen. If it wasn't for the clouds, I probably would have been able to make out the White Tanks... And Four Peaks. Took a couple side trips on the way down, and found a total of four benchmarks. I would like to do some more trips in the Mazatzals, regardless of my terrible pronunciation.

This trip also sets me ahead of my 300 mile goal for the year. :D
