Is that weather moving in?

Last rappel

Colin finishes the last rap down the couloir.

We flew in with Danielle of TAT on March 10. We left camp at 7:35 on March 12 and returned at 22:20. Then we spent a few days winter camping and decided we'd rather go to Valdez and climb waterfalls, so we flew out on March 16.
