5 mile approach just to hit the Cold Springs trailhead. Made camp at 8000 feet and headed out the next morning at 5am.
Made the summit at 12 noon. I myself experienced some altitude sickness, but made the summit nonetheless (even with Diamox). Made a full ski descent from the summit, even though the top down to Pikers peak was horrid wind blown ice that challenged me quite a bit.

Once down at Pikers Peak the skiing down to the lunch counter was incredible!

Back down at camp I slowly bounced back from the altitude sickness, especially since the skiing took much more effort than glissading. Skiing down back to the car took much effort with a 55lb pack, and the road down to mile 7 of the road was messed up. That road (90405000) barely loses any elevation at all, and with a bad wax job I was hating it. After all was said and done, I still made it back 45 minutes before even our fastest hiker, and 1hr 15 minutes before the slowest. 22 miles total round trip.
