Nice job.

Wondered how the altitude would treat you. Glad you made it safely. Cool pictures.

I was the last hiker that saw you on top.

Hello, I am hiker who told you I came over from Mt. Russel. Yes, your wife did look a little tired when I was talking to you. I decended the mountaineer's route just before you. Did you make down before dark? I was pretty tired too. I just completed Mt. Carriolon, Russel, Muir, and Whitney.

Re: I was the last hiker that saw you on top.

It's a small world :)

We saw you making your way down MR into the notch - the gravelly, wet slabs just above the 3rd class rock before the notch were a pain. Made it back to camp (Iceberg) after dark.

Bagging the 4 peaks in a day - that's very impressive stuff. Think I was very tired too since it took me a while to catch on to what you were saying on the summit - sorry.
