Don't really care about the hikes. I know I will get my ass reamed for that comment, but I am not that big of a hiker. I will save that trip for when I have more time, and raft support. Any way Jeff West did it in 5 days in a long boat. So I am thinking 8 Days is reasonable for me. I have a buddy with a permit that has done it a few times that may be down for bombing it. He also has a Stinger.
any my question has been answered.
