I also didn't make it last year because of altitude sickness just before Trail Crest. I also failed in 2015 but because of a blizzard that struck in October. Next week I'm making another attempt from the West while spending a few days in the wilderness to acclimate.
I wish you the best of success on your adventure.
Hi Ed, Seems we've both had some bad luck. In 2015 I'm sure I'd have made the summit but for that snowstorm.
I've decided to give it another shot today despite the message I'm getting from my shaky 60yo joints. As the saying goes, 'go hard or go home' . I'll be tracking a stripped down pack and making for Trail Camp again for an overnight before a summit attempt on Tuesday.
Good luck to you next week.
