are Handies Peak to Ouray and the top of Grant-Swamp
pass to the finish (or in my case, where I got lost,
to the Putnam aid station).

For learning the course, I recommend:
1. Kamm Traverse to the finish (including the last
mile from the road crossing to Silverton). Moderatly
hard, second night.
2. Grant-Swamp pass (or Chapman) to KT. Hard, dark
if you're slow.
3. Handies Peak to Grouse Gulch. Hard, lots of snow,
may be dark.
4. Lower Bear Creek to Ouray. Easy to moderate, but
dark and confusing, easy to get lost.
5. Governor's Basin to Virginius. Very hard, still
dark if you're fast.
