Nearly everything in the tent was embedded in solid ice. We chopped away as much as possible to make it feasible to carry things out, although we ran out of time before clearing ice off of everything we hoped to carry out.
2010-05-15 - Mt Shasta Retrieval Climbing SAR Ranger Eric White accompanied me to the north side of Mt Shasta to see if Tom and my camp could be recovered. It was a long day (ca. 4,500' of ascent and ca. 15 miles RT), but we did get in some nice ski turns despite the heavy packs and slushy snow.
The camp was too icey to bring everything down, but we got most of the 'recoverables', and the final 'trash' collection can wait until it melts out this summer.
