So jealous!! Glad y'all persevered to get her the next day. And, yeah, they are all too close to the cornice. It's one thing to not notice in a white out, it's another to see 'How close can I get?' I started yelling at a guy on Dickerman one winter.
Super fun trip! Very memorable couple of days mainly due to all the cool people that managed to make it out.
Sunday was great as most of us were doubting we'd be doing much more than sitting in the tents in more rain. We left our 4000' camp for the summit somewhere between 0800 and 0830 and were on the top by 1130. The last 3000' of gain to the summit were in warm sunshine...sunburns for most of us! I was envious of those who got to ski down!
There are really no words to say how memorable and special this weekend was for me. I want to thank every single one of you for standing in the rain and cold and making it feel so warm.
I was quite upset, sad , and disappointed I could not make it to the summit. I pushed and tried so hard to ignore the pain in my ankle. (Twisted my ankle on a trip last week) I felt good and strong and it was beautiful, I wanted it soooo bad. Damn ankle was not wanting it as bad as I did. I turned around after about 1000' of gain. I sat for a very long time bitching at my ankle and talking to the cute guys and great folks climbing past my sorry ass. After that I descended and hung out at camp with Janet, AB and yet for while till they headed back down to wait there. I was not about to leave. I didn't want to leave even when everybody got back....I didnít want to say goodbye...
A few words to some of the players: (so donít read it if you donít like it)
Dicey, Thanks for the location beta and idea, the reminder about plastics, and the plastic bag....

Love ya all and thank-you!!!!!
some images and a video. The video has images not posted.....
Thank you for the photos and the video. I could watch it over and over again. And I will! This weekend was very special to me, too. I was not there so much for the summit (OMG, gasp!) as much as to spend time with some very cool people, such as yourself. You know you're awesome, right? Despite a very unpleasant start to your weekend, you were determined to have fun anyway. And fun you had! I fell asleep to the sound of your giggles on Saturday night. Keep on being you, Tazz. You have a gift for bringing people together and making good times happen.
Heeeeyyy. I'm glad you guys had fun! I can vicariously enjoy the trip with all the great pictures. One thing thing the pictures probably didn't adequately convey (well, except maybe the picture of the stoves) was how freakin' cold it was. I'm glad I missed that part of it. I woulda froze my ass off.
Where is the camp in your picture Tazz? I can't find it.
