Elevation: 10,000'

The Summit Teams departed Camp Muir for an early alpine start today but were forced to turn around at approximately 11,400’ due to high winds, poor visibility and reportedly high avalanche conditions.  The Five Day Summit Climb May 25 - 29 and the Four Day Summit Climb May 26 - 29 teams returned safely to Camp Muir and rested for a few hours before starting their decent to Paradise.
