I, too, just completed Purgatory -> Chicago -> Ruby -> Purgatory, bagging Jupiter, Turret and Pigeon along the way. I did it in 3 days, just under 60 hours. Notes on the days:
Day 1 - The hike to Chicago Basin is longer than I remember.
Day 2 - Descending into No-Name basin is looser than previously mentioned.
Day 3 - After descending Ruby Creek I am glad I came in the other way. Furthermore, I ran into a part who came up Pigeon Creek. They didn't make it sound bad but they didn't make it sound good. They also noted there is barely a seep for water in Pigeon Basin.
Do not overestimate yourself for this journey - it is not a walk in the park.
