I am now calmer inside the sleeping bag of the C3, to about 7050 meters and with a cold that freezes the thoughts.
It has been a hard day fighting against the wind with all our willpower. At times, it has become a tougher battle than the summit attack of last winter in the Nanga Parbat. Amazing. I still can’t believe it. We have put all our strength and desire, and despite the intensity of the wind higher than expected and the lowest temperatures around -40º, we have thrown forward as a few wild boars by the ascent to the South Col.

When we have arrived at C4 (7950m) we have done everything in our power to set up the tent, but the wind has not respected us and it has been impossible for us. Therefore, we have decided it was not the time to challenge nature at these heights and conditions, since we are nothing in dealing with it, and we could have suffered frostbite or even worse.

For the moment, as I have mentioned earlier, we have descended to C3 (low) and we have not given up for anything in the world. The only thing we have done is to respect the nature that today was not waiting for us up there. At this hour I do not know what we are going to do tomorrow because I really do not know if we will be able to sleep now... but, as always, I will keep you informed of everything. Thank you very much for being up to the challenge.

In late December, Chris Mutzel, Austin Siadak and Jimmy Voorhis climbed a new line on Cerro Solo. They started on the north side and climbed to the west ridge, climbing several small towers to connect into El Dragón. The rock quality is less-than-perfect, and the steeper pitches require care. “El Tiburón” covers quite a lot of terrain, with a few sections to 5+.

LOST DOG NEAR MT BALDY
Dakota is still out there. He got lost coming down the main trail and ended up in San Antonio Canyon, he attempted to do a work around of the upper falls and on the second or third fall(s) he slipped and fell enough to break his leg and puncture his lung, his dog (his son's actually who passed last year) is somewhere up between the falls. The dog Dakota is a german sheppard who's very friendly and the genteleman's wife will take calls should you find the dog - the wife is Connie (562) 743-5904. Pass the word let's see if we cannot get this dog home to his family

The big weather window that everyone awaited has all but vanished. Meanwhile, Tomas and Silvestro Franchini, with the help of Mariano Spisso climbed a new route on the southeast face of Cerro Penitentes’ northeast summit, in the Cerro San Lorenzo Provincial Reserve.

http://mtsanjacinto.info/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=5678&sid=177fd7b8458b95d8fef3874a8d71db2e  --  Skyline Trail snow conditions 

Zip, there is a path all the way to the tram. From Flatrock through the manzanita there are a few spots that are off the trail, but not much. There was a SAR operation today to find a regular Skyliner who went up in the storm and didn't return home (whose name I will not say). He was found I think about 8 -9 am this morning? I'm a little shocked he was able to survive the night from having no tent or sleeping bag. I think I followed his tracks after the Traverse. Looks like boot tracks partly covered over by new snow. It's a postholing nightmare from the Traverse on. Soft sugary powder. Dude is super strong to survive the night and continue postholing up the next morning. SAR was heading up both from the museum and from the tram. From Coffman's Crag to Long Valley is the best winter trail I have EVER seen. I'm not 100% positive but it was SAR/RMRU but it looks like a dozen pairs of snowshoes must have made switchbacks going down from the top. It looks neater than the summer trail. Looks like a trench/sidewalk of snow. Whoever did it was amazing. There is a "caution" tape at the top to discourage people from heading down I think just due to how nice that path is. The only other people I saw heading up were two guys who looked like they were ready to tackle Denali judging by their pack. Very pretty day with rime ice on the trees.
