Launching before noon? I am confused, what exactly is that?
Actually with the early sunsets, earlier dinners, and earlier drinking going to bed at a reasonable time isn't that hard. I was often the last one up at 11 or midnight on a similar trip with a little less daylight as we were closer to the solstice. 16 days, lots
of side hikes, one layover day. We usually left camp around 10:30, on a few motivated days we left at 9 am for good hikes. Quick breakfasts are key for hiking days (seal a meal...mmm).
