Eldorado Peak/Inspiration Glacier

June 27, 2015. Group of nine. Left trail head at 4 am. Straight forward route finding, easy to follow climbers trail all the way. Cairns through boulder field. Did not rope up until we reached the inspiration glacier at 7,300 ft. (Eldorado glacier was straight forward with no crevasses on route, so did not rope up). Crevasses on Inspiration Glacier easily avoidable, straight forward route. Summit ridge wide and easy. Brought crampons and pickets, used neither. Back at cars at 4 pm. 12 hours round trip, 30 mins on summit and 2 longer stops filtering water. Gorgeous but very very hot day.
