Were they climbing everyday with headlamps ? How many batteries & how much fuel ? Where did they find a place to erect a tent & sleep side by side between Southfork Pass and Mt.Sill ? How long did it take to get back ,with a stop to pick up their snowshoes from Southfork Pass,to their car from Agassiz ?

Congratulations Jed & Ian .When John Fischer and I traversed the Palisades in 1979,it was his fifth attempt in ten years and our second together.He was most familiar with the sections between Mt.Sill and Agassiz .We had been stormed off Norman Clyde in June ,1978 .We had to tie-in seperately to sleep on Bivouac Peak & in the middle of the Palisade Crest .We had long days of climbing & daylight & ran out of food in the morning until we reached our cache on the summit of Mt.Sill after 8pm & our water bottles froze that night.John had a down jacket & elephants foot for sleeping & I had a light down bag and a Lowe backpack with a Gore-tex extension to sleep in .We had a single rope,ran out of rap slings by North Palisade but saw a party rapping from Starlight and picked up their slings. We had to rap down some days to find snow & ice for water .It took us a long time to get to PSOM camp at Fifth Lake the last day & we certainly were not in shape to make it back to Glacier Lodge until the next day.
