I followed the ridge-line all the way and went right over the top of East Peak (ie. the one between 7 and 1). The entire hike car to car, over 8,7 and 1 only took 10 hours, so no issues. Between 7...

You might be surprised at how difficult and slow winter bushwhacking can be. Last January it took me 2.5 hours of over-the-top effort to travel 400 yards on Avalanche Peak. And I was in really good...

Yeah, if your hand-wear remains dry and your hands stay warm then you probably have no deed for VBL gloves.
