North Cascades: Poor Weather Prevents Summit for Sahale Mountain Team
Yesterday our team made a strong summit attempt of Sahale Mountain in poor conditions. We reached 8,100’ on the Quien Sabe Glacier following a morning of low visibility as well as increasing rain and wind. With a deteriorating weather forecast we decided not to cross a tricky bergschrund, which would have put us in a difficult place considering the soggy snow conditions. We returned to camp wet, but in high spirits knowing we gave it our best go. The entire team did an excellent job and are looking forward to sunny summits in the future!
