Elevation: 10,080'

Today we started the day off with an ascent of Muir Peak while practicing proper cramponing. We concluded with some safety skills with self and team arrest. The team is enjoying the views in the sunshine and it is slowly warming up. Next on the agenda is teaching rope travel and glacial travel principles.

Greetings to my very cute wife, Katie.  Even though you’re hiding in the back of the picture, I can tell it’s you by the blue helmet.  Glad you found some snow in the middle of June, the season the rest of the country calls (almost) summer.  Love ken

You are all better men and women than me, but my training will continue and intensify for a return attempt. Congratulations on getting this far and best wishes for favorable conditions for tomorrow’s summit push. Weather willing, I am sure you will be successful. Eat lots, sleep well, and climb strong.
