We started at 4:45 am and summited around 9:15 am. As the reports state route finding after the hunters creek turn off is a little difficult especially in the dark. We timed it so it was getting light when we were in this area. there is broken trail segments kind of everywhere. If there is considerable deadfall back track and there was likely another trail and you chose poorly. We went up to mt meeker first which I thought never got too difficult unless you wanted it to. We crossed the knifes âœledge❠Which was solid and fun. We stuck ridge proper over to meeker ridge at 9:45 am and down the ridge proper. It took about 3.5 hrs down. We went further southeast into the trees which wasn't great and would just cut down much sooner. The weather was much better than expected. It never got too cold or too gusty. We saw a handful of people on Longs. No snow on our trail. It was still trail runner shoe season. Notably really cool inversion coming up over the east face and cloud cover over the front range.
