Things I learned on my trip

  • When winter camping, you spend a lot of alone time in your tent
  • You want the rope to make a smiley face between you and your rope partner
  • Water does NOT boil quickly
  • There are mice on the mountains in the Northern Cascades
  • Prussiks are for rescue -- use friction hitch to attach to rope
  • I love high altitude outdoor toilets
  • Do NOT pee in running water sources
  • I don't love wind that blows snow in your face
  • Climbing is all about you, not about anyone else.
