Ascent Trip ReportHeaded over solo after summiting Colchuck with Aseem. Successfully summited the major West summit, but t-storms were forcasted and were clearly moving in, and I want to return to my climbing partner.
The storm moved in when we returned to our tent. We later learned a climber was involved in a lightning strike on Colchuck.
