Elevation: 10,000'

The Expedition Skills Seminar team awoke at Muir with sunny skies. We spent the day training outside going over basic climbing skills.

Later this afternoon the weather rolled in and we retreated back into the comfort of our bunkhouse. There we continued training where the team safely learned self rescue out of a crevasse.

Tonight we will enjoy dinner, lecture on high altitude medicine and tell some tall tales along the way.

The Expedition Skills Seminar – Muir led by Casey Grom and JJ Justman were able to safely climb to the top of Cathedral Gap this morning.  They had clear weather, sunshine and no wind.  The team had experienced winter-like conditions this week at Camp Muir but had a lot of fun training at 10,000 feet.


Hope the weather hold out for your team.  Good luck and thanks for a great adventure last week.
