Since the trough was covered in good consolidated snow, the descent went quickly.

After the trough, we crossed over to the keyhole and were glad to be finished with the technical section. We descended to our camp at the boulder field, packed up, and hiked out towards the trail head. The hike down should have been uneventful, but at about tree line we lost the trail and earned a few bonus miles as we post holed around searching for the trail. Fortunetly, it wasn't long before we got back on the hard packed trail and soon were back to our cars.
