Ascent Trip Report

We had made it to the 9700 foot level or so when I told Dennis I was really having some stomach problems. I knew at that point that I couldn't make the summit due to the way I felt and if I could have gotten rid of my stomach contents, I probably would've been able to but I felt it was some form of the 24 hour flu. I encouraged Dennis to go on and get the summit but he would not hear of it and suggested we go back to the vehicles and if I felt better, try again the next day. As things turned out, we did get the peak the next day. Read about it on my trip report for the 8th.
