Elevation: 10,060'

Today’s teams were unable to reach the summit due to high winds and new snow.  The Four Day Summit Climb led by Andres Marin and the Five Day Summit Climb led by Pete Van Deventer reported consistent winds with stronger gusts and two new inches of snow overnight.  At 8:00 a.m. PT the teams began their descent from Camp Muir.

Glad your team made the safe decision.  The mountain is not going anywhere hopefully for awhile. Jenelle
