Hello from the Sulphide Glacier on Mount Shuksan!

The team and I are at camp, located at 6,000’ on the Sulphide Glacier.  We had a mix of rain, sun, mist and fog on our hike to camp today.  It’s currently overcast but no precipitation while we get ready to eat dinner. The hike took us 6 1/2 hours to get here and everyone is doing well.

Tomorrow’s itinerary includes practicing some mountaineering skills to prepare for the upcoming summit bid.
