Ascent Trip Report

We didn't do the full traverse/shuttle, because we are Dumbs. We hit Vista from Baldy TH, then we hit Magnificent from Mile High TH...we were left with Mile High Peak in the Middle. Given this sub-optimal setup, I mapped out on Caltopo to see which trailhead is best to summit Mile High from and...it's the mile high trail head. From Baldy it's more gain and about 1.5 more miles (one way). Still, this was a long night. It took us a little under 8 miles round-trip on a "school night" and the whole hike out was by headlamp. We had Sicily's Pizza delivered at 2:30am, it was not great. (their pizza is wildly inconsistent lately, right?)
