Ran up Ptarmigan Peak and Bottle Peak this morning via the old secret trail. I really like this run, as it sees very little traffic and provides for some spectacular views. Although it is only around ~13 miles (and 3,633 elevation gain), it took me 2:55 today. Running just Bottle Peak only takes me ~2:10, but adding in Ptarmigan requires another 45 minutes of speed hiking and off-trail running.
