@wademorris12 TAKEOVER -
The ultimate goal on Denali was to climb the Cassin Ridge. With six months of grueling training and the expenses of traveling to Denali, I was really hoping for a successful trip.
But sometimes you don't send... I got hit with a nasty GI bug, mixed with some sort of flu. I approached the first 2,000 ft of the Cassin and could barely keep up in the bootpack. I knew I could not climb the route fast enough with the given weather window. I regretfully backed out and wished my friends luck.
I live to climb another day. | #arcteryxdenver #celebratewild
