It was day 18 of our trip. We had just spent 3 days sleeping and eating copious amounts, trying to recover from our ascent of the Cassin Ridge. Our base camp friends had all left and the 14000 ft camp was starting to feel abandoned. The snow walls fortifying our tent were drooping and looked more like ruins that could tumble in the wind. We where both starting to feel the pull of civilization, but we also felt like we had the opportunity for another ascent.
We woke up at 3am after a restless night.....check out alpinesummits.blogspot.com for the rest of the story.
Raphael Slawinski also did a great job describing the ascent, check out his blog.
We would like to thank MEC for there generous support via their Expedition Support Program.
