Elevation: 10,080'

The Four Day Summit Climbs led by Lindsay Mann and Tyler Jones were unable to leave Camp Muir last night.  The team experienced heavy thunderstorms that brought much lightening and 6 inches of new snow to Camp Muir. The teams plan to leave Camp Muir shortly and will be back in Ashford in the early afternoon.

Congratulations to today’s teams!



Janet and Peter,
Although it wasn’t what you planned, it sounds like you had quite the adventure,  Maybe Peter should have brought his raft!  I can’t wait to hear all about your trip.  Love you both!!!!

Owen, hope you enjoyed the attempt. Sorry to hear about the weather although it must have been exciting with lighting, wind and thunder.

Have a safe return.

Hey Janet and Peter!  Congratulations on your climb!  We can’t imagine being in a tent on the mountain with thunder and lightning during the night!  What an electrifying experience that must have been!  Random still says four hooves to you for your climb!  Gretchen is still resting and relaxing and wishing she had done the first 17 miles with you!  Be safe on your return.  Cheers!  Pat and Jeanne
