As always, a solid butt-kicker of a day. Managed to hit the flatiron, 5024, 4869, 5057, and a new route on the way down via Dacite to Fremont and Peralta.

Ran into Preston and Jason on 5057 on their way across the ridgeline in the other direction, as well as a couple who seemed likely to be on the news later tonight or tomorrow. ](*,)

Tons of gnats on the summit of 5057, but none 10 feet away. :-k

Dacite is a great area, though we got turned around just a bit before dropping to Fremont. Peralta was surprisingly pleasant with just a handful of other hikers encountered the entire length.

Clouds and breeze helped cut down on the warm spring sun. It was actually quite nice out. I carried 4.5 liters and drank a little under 2.

I ran HAZTracks all day. Battery died somewhere around 4869 where I plugged in my backup solar charger. Got it back to about 40% and then ran it dry shortly before getting to Fremont after nearly 7.5 hours of running. Still have to work on other battery options for long days like this. I filled in the blanks from Kyle's track.

Great day out there. Nice to meet Dennis! Thanks to Kyle for helping with the shuttle.
