Mt. Shuksan: Geoff and Team Recount Summit Day

Hi all,

Well we lucked out with the weather yesterday and made the summit of Mt Shuksan.  If you had asked me our chances of climbing yesterday morning I would have said not good.  The sky was very dark with heavy clouds hanging all around the summit, but as we started climbing they seemed to dissipate.  Kirk and Harry did a great job despite being a bit nervous about the rock climbing necessary for the summit pyramid.  We left our camp at around 7:30 AM and found ourselves smiling on the summit by 12:30.  All in all a great day.

Today we are resting and recovering during the intermittent rain showers and will hopefully get some more training in when we can.

That’s all for now,
