Ascent Trip ReportThis was the first of the 2011 Climb for Clean Air teams led by RMI. Ascended to Muir under partly cloudy skies. Throughout the night the wind continued to build. Left Camp Muir around 1am. As we ascended through Cathedral Gap, the wind continued to increase and mixed rain and snow started to fall. I turned back at the first break on Ingraham Flats along with several other climbers. The rest of the team continued on but eventually turned back as well at the top of Disappointment Cleaver.
