Ascent Trip Report Started on May the 2nd with Jennifer Knezek and John Judd. Very, very cold many -10 degree days. Caught in a snowstorm at 14,000 for 4 days and then a few more days to summit. Saved a Russians life who fell before high camp. Set up an anchor and helped him back up the 100 feet he fell. If he hadn't ht a boulder he would have fallen over 2,000 feet.
Great summit day with all three of us and Eric from Holland.
