Mt. Elbert: A Climb Told In Photographs

 

Tonight I am proud to be a guest of In Ice Axe We Trust, a mountaineering podcast where i’m telling my story of our Mt. Elbert winter attempt in which we faced wolves, freezing temperatures, and snow which resulted in a turn around just 1,000 feet under it’s 14,400 ft summit. As a companion piece to the show (which will air tonight at 8 pm PST and 11 pm EST) which I will post in the morning, I am posting the photographs taken by my climbing partners Manuel Castro and Ivan Flores.
