Geez, Adam ...

I was hoping that this wasn't a single camp, in
relation to the number of climbers. Of course, it was taken a few years back. Nice composite!

If this had been a SINGLE camp, I hope the person in the yellow (bending over) didn't
have a 'can of beans' for breakfast! :))

Camp Schurman can get pretty crowded at the height of the season. That's why we decided to camp a couple hundred feet higher at Emmons Flats. I know that sometimes altitude can bring out the smelly side of us.

Re: Geez, Adam ...

Thanks, I had forgotten about the flats. What
about Camp Curtis, is it closer to the
Winthrop Glacier side?

As long as you estimate the wind direction,
you can probably stand clear of your adversaries. Wind direction is important !!!

Larry, Camp Curtis is right between the Winthrop side and the Emmons Side. Thanks for the tip on wind. I'll put it into practice. I think it might work for offense as well as defense.
