Re: An extreme...

Thanks Rumuald. As I reached the summit it started to snow and it looked like systems coming in from all directions. My wife had watched the climb via binoculars from the hut and of course it was nothing more than a cloud on top of me. It is funny how different your perception is when at different elevations in the Rockies. It was nice to descend and see that it was nothing. The next day, we did get a huge winter snow storm. I would imagine this route has approximately 4 feet of snow it at the moment. Cheers!
