June 18 Team Turned on Summit Ridge Due to Weather

This is part one of a two part (garbled) message from the June 18 Team. The team made a huge effort today and climbed all the way to the summit ridge (20,000′), only to be turned around due to the ferocious winds on the summit. Karl and crew stopped at the Football Field to check in and give us an update. Great effort, team!
