We ran the Devil's Thumb route yesterday late in the afternoon. This is an excellent hill climb with ~2,100 feet in elevation gain in under 3 miles. We did a shorter 6 mile hike yesterday as a recovery from our long run the day before, and decided to do the Devil's Thumb hill run to get in a good hill climb today. There is still some snow on the last .5 mile before treeline, with some serious post holing. However, it was passable and we put in a solid effort. I did it in 1:32 this time - including tagging the actual thumb.
