Nice work on the route. What were the temps?

Re: Katahdin

It was above zero, I think around 15-20 degrees if I remember right. The temp sticks in my head a little because 2 guys who were behind us tried to bail over to the right and ended up dead-ended below the "black gullies". Then their headlamps died and they had an open bivy (sitting on a ledge all night with only 1 down jacket between them) and they didn't die because the low temp for the night was around 5. It can get much, much colder up there, though.
