The team just reached the ranger station at 1:20pm PST after 14.2 miles and more than 5000 feet of descending on the final day! The loop around the mountain is approximately 52 miles, with an elevation gain of ~15,000 feet on the ascent and a loss of ~13,200 on the descent over 16 days. Safe travels home guides and climbers.
