Today, Peter and I summitted Middle Palisade in 6 hours 1 minute. He actually got to the top about 5 minutes ahead of me but, this is all about me so..... : )
Our round trip time was 11 hours 8 minutes. Great weather, snow, mountain and partner. I'd call this a mega classic day. I have an awesome photo of Peter's 6'6" frame stretched out in the back of my truck murmuring something that sounded like, "Bivy here now." He has somewhat revived after a Negro Modello (sp?), chilli verdi, and Cherry Garcia ice cream. Tomorrow we go after Russell, Whitney, and Muir in a push. The forecast is good and we are psyched!
