It was in the 70's when we hiked down at 0800 am but in the 90's when we hiked out at 3 pm. The hike was 1.5 hrs in and 2.4 hrs back. I would not recommend this to anyone out of shape or with heart disease as it's definitely a stress test. My fishing buddy hauled in some very nice 20+" browns while I broke off more than I'd care to admit. My taste for trout has returned as I tasted some brown trout our companions had for dinner. Expecting the worse, I had some very tasty trout that came very close to salmon in texture, color and flavor. We are doing this trip again but definitely bringing a much lighter tent. Thanks for all the help and suggestions fellas, they were much appreciated.
Racine: Thanks for the trip report! Glad you had a great time and some great fishing from the sounds of it. Yes, I have heard that it is a very tough descent in and climb out, but then I guess that is why the fishing is so good!
