Out for a hike of Hamilton Mt. today. We have a little group doing conditioning hikes to get ready for summer climbs. We have a series of hikes planned that will progressively get harder. Hamilton Mt. is the first on the list. Nice sunny day but ran into some strong winds at times. We did an easy pace and were on the trail for five and half hours. This hike is about 7.5 miles and 2100 ft. elevation gain.
