Ascent Trip Report

Traversed from Gardner (left 1145). Tagged summit at 1320. Remained until near 1400. Once to Point 8,457 (or whatever it is) I descended scree and snow to near the meadows and my cached primary pack at 1515, began trek out at 1545, car at 1945. How is it that the hike out took essentially as the hike out...mystery to me.
