Another failed summit attempt on Darton Peak in the Bighorns yesterday. It's 16 miles RT with 3,400ft of gain. My partner just couldn't make it, and I'm not the type to leave someone sitting somewhere while I climb. So.....looks like I'll just have to go back....such a bummer.
We did 13 RT in a little over 5 hours, and that was with multiple breaks, so we weren't pushing that hard, he just wasn't used to that type of physical activity although he was in great strength shape. Eh, I hope he didn't get too scared off, people willing to do this crap are hard to find.
