Elevation: 10,060'

The Five Day Summit Climb led by Mark Falender along with the Four Day Summit Climb led by Chad Peele were forced to turn around at the top of Disappointment Cleaver (approx. 12,300’) due to high winds and poor visibility.  The teams returned safely to Camp Muir and will begin their descent to Paradise around 9 a.m. PT.
