I arrived at Icehouse Saddle parking lot at 5:45am and the parking lot was full. This place is becoming absurd. I parked down the street and jogged back up to the trailhead to meet my two partners for the day. We left exactly at 6am and within 20 minutes my fingers were not getting good circulation as they were throbbing with severe pins and needles. I told my friends to take off while I rested up and at a banana and thought about going back to the car. Soon after the banana, I instantly felt better and so I took off and caught up to the other two. We reached the saddle at 8am and Ontario Peak just before 10am.
Unfortunately, I had to get home by 3pm so I needed to be off the trail by 2pm so we left the peak by 10:30pm. I reached the saddle by 11:45am and got back to the parking lot by 1:15pm.
