On Summit Day we woke up at 1 AM and barely slept 4 hours. It was a rough night.
With the excitement of the upcoming day, being a bit scared on the outcome, and sleeping at 10K plus feet wasn’t a perfect sleeping scenario and don’t forget the other 15 people sleeping around you!
As you all know my first attempt to the summit didn’t turn out as planned. The guides turned me back when we were close to 12K feet, due to my inexperience and my clumsiness. They agreed I was too much of a liability so they sent me back to Camp Muir with 4 other team members- – – not the outcome I was hoping for, but I will go back and get to that summit!
