2 friends and I plan on hiking this route, 1-way not round trip, in hopefully 1 day. It would be Friday, May 25th, obviously starting early morning. Think this is possible? I am a little nervous bout this one.

Hello Paul -- During the summer, depending on your physical condition it could be done probably without too many problems. However, May 25th is probably a little early for a 'hike'. I'm not sure if you are planning part of this as a snowshoe -- there is currently 18 inches of snow at Marion Forks (2600'), and I think you will be crossing at least 5000' to get over the pass -- so you will encounter a lot of snow.

Hey thanks for that response. My buddies are planning it and asked me to join. I dont think they know of the snow at all. They did the hike from Jack Lake to Three Fingered Jack and back in about 10-11 hours. I'm just skeptical about it being a 1 day hike. Whatever pointers i can get would be helpful.
