Early this morning, we crawled out of our warm sleeping bags. The temperature was right at freezing, and a stiff breeze never died off in the hours of darkness. During the night, I had decided that I should not summit with my two climbing buddies. Whether from sympathy or prudence, they decided none of us would summit. Mount Columbia remains on our list of 14ers to climb.
It was a beautiful morning nonetheless.
