Great weather for this hike with 5 total in our group. We initially were concerned about rain but once on Brown's Peak we all decided that the immediate risk was low so we continued on to the rest of the peaks. We had no issues traversing from Browns to peak 2 by 9am and we enjoyed a summit beverage. Peak 2 to 3 was more difficult but still made Peak 3 summit by 1130.

After that it took awhile to make Peak 4 which we later discovered was probably a routing error. We should have gone straight out the ridgeline off Peak 3 but instead we down climbed off the side which took more time. Despite all that excitement we still made Peak 4 by about 1315 and had another beverage to celebrate knocking out all four :D

The hike down the gully below Peak 4 was brushy but uneventful as the 30% of rain was starting to build around the peaks. We hit the trail with only a sprinkle or two and it didn't rain until we were at the vehicles. I know Amy said she would never do this one again but I think if we correct our routing issue she just might say yes again :)
