Good trail, quite a bit longer than the hunter trail. The first Death Chute is only on the Sunset Vista trail. The weather was perfect, warming to about 74 degrees. We had to wait at some of the cable areas, but the wait times were a welcome relief. It got breezier towards noon, which was really nice. At the top we saw a young couple sharing a bottle of water, with maybe 4 ounces of water left. It is winter, but take water! Gloves are nice to have on the cables.
