Awesome...how were conditions
We had a track to follow, but had to break a bit of trail in it. Thankfully my strongmen partners did all this work. At treeline, though, the wind was tremendous and I was thinking we had to turn around, but we decided to at least try it. It seemed ridiculous to me and I put on all the clothes I had including a balaclava and a hat over that, my shell and my down jacket over that. It was brutal wind, but we stayed warm enough, making sure every bit of skin was covered. It was a tremendous struggle for Derek and I up top. Probably took us nearly an hour to do the last 400 vertical. Happy to have made the top.
