Tom Wolfe on the summit ridge of Mt. Whyte on the last day of our ten day Alpine guide’s exam. We wore our goggles ALOT on this exam. We managed to summit five peaks in ‘full alpine’ conditions.
On the walk out, the valley bottom offers us a haven from winter weather and the ever watching eye of our seasoned examiners.
We got our money’s worth this year and will hopefully find out the results in a week. If the stars align, Lilla Molnar and I will become the 6th and 7th female mountain guides in Canada. What a journey!
