You're very welcome!

These are only estimated travel times in any case. It should take Gandalf and Bilbo between two and three weeks to negotiate the High Pass and maybe another three days to reach Rivendell on the evening of May the First. So they probably reached the western end of the pass at the end of April 28 or in the morning of the 29th.

In case you're curious, this is how the journey plays out under the Journey rules of The One Ring Roleplaying Game (additional complications could shorten or lengthen the travel time; I allow for some extra time in the High Pass for Gandalf to look for a way to block up the goblins' Front Porch):

From Beornís House to Rivendell
At last they came up the long road, and reached the
very pass where the Goblins had captured them before.

This journey brings a company from the house of Beorn
to the Last Homely House on the other side of the Misty
Mountains, going across the Old Ford. It covers a distance
of 190 miles.

First leg: to the High Pass (Free Land, Border Land)
30 miles across open terrain to the Old Ford, 60 miles on
road to the mountainsí feet (3 days).

Fatigue test: 1 (any season).

Second leg: Across the High Pass (Wild Land)
60 miles across mountain path (15 days of march).

Fatigue tests: 5 (Winter), 3 (Spring),
3 (Summer), 4 (Autumn).

Fourth leg: to the Last Homely House (Border Land)
40 miles across rugged terrain (3 days of march).

Fatigue test: 1 (any season).
