Summited with a full moon rocking over Mt. Foraker. The ambient temperature was well below -40 Farenheit with a 30 mile an hour wind and slightly dark. The windchill temperature was fathomless! The 4 of us were all covered in ice and I could not see through my brand new goggles because they kept freezing from my breath. I had to break into my thermally lined water bottle with my ice axe to salvage the liquid inside. It was impossible to open. My North Face Baltoro Jacket was a lifesaver. An unbelieveably harrowing experience.
