FOLLOWED THE LEAD OF THE VAIL SUMMIT PARTY 2 DAYS EARLIER. CLIMBING IN FOG THE WHOLE WAY. TURNED BACK AT THE SUMMIT PITCH- MY PARTNER WAS STRUGGLING WITH THE ALTITUDE, THE FOG, THE PITCH WAS ROTTEN SNOW ON TOP OF ROTTEN ICE- TWO AUSTRIANS DESCENDING FELL TWICE, THE LAST TIME BEING A FIFTY FOOT SLIDE INTO THE BERGSHRUND (UNHURT). STILL AN AMAZING CLIMB WITHOUT THE SUMMIT (NOT THAT WE WOULD HAVE SEEN ANYTHING), AND SUCH A BEAUTIFUL MTN
