Cataract lake, storm is in.
Moogy lost his vision due to altitude (I had it last year) and called it a day at Sherman. Bummer. He crewed for texas runners and myself the rest of the day, with Joe and Naresh.
Feeling good on the way to Sherman!

Views are breathtaking!
Here it is, the 3-pitch climb.
Everybody went straight, it steeper, but had a fixed rope. I went to the right, on a freezing-ass solid snow. Very smart.
Now we have to go down...
on all four
Downhill from here to Telluride.
Out to Oscar's...whiny and slow.
It's beautiful, and I am bitching.
Yeah, that wasn't it, we cross here and climb again.
That's not it either, we still cross and climb...
Now we are ready to plunge down!
Or are we???
Out of Chapman AS, going for a stroll to Grant Swamp.
It's party here!!! Lori and Chris
Done, now lets scoot down.
It was fun and lots of lovey-gooey converstaions.
This is it? This is it...This is it!
