You're looking very serious there, G00SE.

Thanks for sporting the Trailspace gear on your climb.

Yeah, ppine, weather turned us back 1000' from the summit, but I can scratch this off my Bucket List.

I did this hike in 2013 -- It was really rewarding!  My parents were HEAVY smokers, (I was exposed to up to 5 packs a day, second hand smoke, and we didn't realize how deathly allergic I am to tobacco smoke) I was constantly sick with bronchitis and pneumonia. To have accomplished this was beyond my wildest dreams.
It was quite a view, and a great ride down, glissading!

This is my facebook post from that day:

Today I tackled Camp Muir with Tom and Alex. I have LOTS of trouble with altitude because of scarring in my lungs. But I did it! I hit 10,000 feet. I NEVER dreamed I could do such a difficult hike--gaining 4,800 in 4.5miles!
