Jamel and I left from S of Boulder at 5:35AM, started hiking about 8:20. Good weather but overcast later in the day, winds up high no more than 10 mph, temps nonetheless cooler than the expected 32 degrees. Good trail until ~10750 at which point the tracks went left, presumably heading up higher on Yale's eastern ridge than where the main trail would go. We put back in the main trail to the saddle, trying to find and stay on the originally packed trail, but now covered over. We put in some good work at times to re-trench this trail. Fun social outing for the two of us. :rock:
