Getting overnight permits months in advance never seems to work out, so monster day hike it is!

Crack 'o dawn start up to the saddle, then a side trip up Saddle Mountain on a steep but mostly thrash-free route. Then back to the saddle for the looonng traverse and then the steeeep, looooose drop down to Nanko Creek. Seemed like relatively low creek flow and pretty warm but still refreshing. Enjoyed the granaries and the 5-star downstream view all to myself, not a single raft in sight. Then a late afternoon slog back up the hill and well into the darkness to finish.
