After a long and difficult trip that ended only a few days previous, I was a wee bit apprehensive when Mike Mitchell asked me what I was doing on Saturday, June 3. My second King Edward attempt had cost me around 50km of distance and well over 2500m of height gain, most with a heavy winter mountaineering pack and a good chunk of it either on softening snow or thick BC bush. Going down stairs still hurt, but I figured it was time to nail a summit so I said I was likely "in". Then Mike sent me the details.
