Quick Word

In process of organizing some of our older stuff on SP (for personal shits & giggles). This is from the climb of the East Buttress route on Mt. Whitney we did on Memorial Day weekend of 2004. I recall doing the approach from sea level to Iceberg Lakes on day one and regretting it (we were both kinda sick...)
