Ascent Trip ReportI couldn't have asked for better weather, I was in shape and trained, had the gear all ready. The elevation got me!! I found on the ascent between Camp Muir and Ingraham Flats that I was stumbling, swaying, my balance totally gone and just catching myself with my ice axe. By the time we got to that break I had nothing left. My muscles just weren't getting enough oxygen. I was pressure breathing and rest-stepping, but just didn't help me enough. I made the call that I would not be an asset to my team if I went on, but was happy with my climb anyway! The views, the experience, the physical challenge, the sunrise from Muir... mind-blowing and soul-moving! Incredible.
