The Guardian, Silex, Storm King, and peaks 7 & 6 were all in great shape. No summit registers for Guardian Silex and Storm King. I took the Vallecito trail 14.5 miles to the Leviathan drainage where I was able to find a good spot to rock hop across the Vallecito. Started with The Guardian. The Silex lake scree traverse really isn't near as bad as it looks. Just aim for the grassy ledges and follow a few dents in the scree. The traverse from 7 to 6 goes at class 3 bypassing the difficulties on the SE side of the ridge. This was a really long route as it took a full 24 hours. Saw zero people the entire day.

I estimated the route to be around 42 miles with 11K elevation gain. The sleep demons never let up on the hike out.
