Several times on the summit. Always an epic. This is a peak that always draws me back year after year. Many thanks to Laurie Skreslet for giving me the opportunity to guide with him each year. February 1987, February 1988, January 1990, December-January 1990-01, January 1992, January 1995, January 1997, January 1999, December 1999, January 2000, December 2001 and December 2003. January 10, 2006. I'm writing it all down here as I am starting to lose track of the years I have put in on this peak. Now if I added together all the loads I have carried....
