June 27-29 3day Climb checks in

Lead guide Seth Timpano just called in from a windy Camp Muir. The group got pretty wet on the hike up to Muir yesterday, but everyone made it safely and is doing well. They are psyched to see the sun starting to peak out this morning, and hope to dry out as the day continues.
