Elevation: 10,000'

The Expedition Skills Seminar team awoke at Muir with sunny skies. We spent the day training outside going over basic climbing skills.

Later this afternoon the weather rolled in and we retreated back into the comfort of our bunkhouse. There we continued training where the team safely learned self rescue out of a crevasse.

Tonight we will enjoy dinner, lecture on high altitude medicine and tell some tall tales along the way.
