I'm hoping to pick the brain of those who have done a traverse from north to south.
Our plan is to start at 6 am and ascend to the Madison hut via Valley Way. Quick stop into the hut for water & then off to summit Madison & back to the hut for a short break. Then we make our way to the summit of Adams & on to summit Jefferson & Washington. Once at Washington we will take another break & then down to LOTC for the evening.
About how long do you think this first day of the traverse would take time-wise? I know that our fitness level & weather will affect our speed. We're all strong hikers and have done a good amount of long distance hiking. I'm just wondering if it's reasonable to assume that we would be able to make it to LOTC by dinner since we are going to summit each peak.
