Elevation: 7,300'

Our attempt on Mt. Francis was great.

We were making good time up the southeast ridge until conditions got really icy.  We climbed a pitch of ice and then we made a group decision of turning back down.

The views, as well as the learning experience, were incredible.  Now we are all back in camp enjoying a hot cup of tea.
 
Today we did our last seminar review and will be starting to pack for tomorrow’s flight back to Talkeetna.

Looking forward to a shower and a big salad.
