Great trip. Glorious weather, good views. This was a conditioner trip for the Glacier Travel course. We carried full packs with an extra gallon or two per person for the extra weight. We took the direct route to West Granite, then traversed the ridge to Granite. Lots of snow and boulder hoping on the ridge. It took us 7 hours to reach Granite via West Granite. On the descent, one member twisted her knee. We distributed her gear among the rest of the party, braced her knee, filled her with ibuprofen, and she was able to slowly, painfully, hobble down to the car. Eleven and half hours car to car.
