Pinnacle and Pulpit Loop - Fast Pace

Let's get together and hike the Pinnacle Pulpit loop. I know this isn't very creative, but I've been very busy lately. It's all I really have time for. This is an 8-8.5 mile loop with a little over 1300' of elevation gain, 2 vistas, and a few rocky sections.

I will be treating this as a training hike, so we will keep a somewhat quick pace and not make terribly long stops at the vistas (maybe 5-10 minutes each). I can usually do this by myself in under 3 hours, and I would definitely prefer to keep it under 3.5 hours with this group. Please be sure you can keep up. Prior experience on this section is a plus, but not required. In order to avoid slow-downs and waits, this group will be limited to 8 people. This is NOT a leisurely stroll. Be ready to move!
