Tuesday: Day 1’s objective, Cheops, is reflected in the melt water at the Rangers’ Hut ridge at the 7,000 foot level on the way up Mt. Abbott (8,087 ft./2,465 m) across the valley from Cheops.

Unfortunately, heal blisters stopped my progress up the mountain (luckily I later sorted the problem out and continued the week unaffected by my damaged heals).

While the rest of the team made good progress further up Mt. Abbott, they were again forced to turn around without summiting due to bad weather (torrential rain and hail).
