We finally reach a nice bivy spot and crash for the evening.The weather starts deteriorating.The view from under my tarp. Eric is sitting in the rain rather than get cooped up in his bivy sack already.An intense storm passes by just to the south of us.A 'sort of' nice morning on Friday - but it's cloudy and the summit is in clouds too.Sunrise is pretty intense over Upland and Devon Lakes.Sunrise is pretty intense over Upland and Devon Lakes.Sunrise is pretty intense over Upland and Devon Lakes.Sunrise is pretty intense over Upland and Devon Lakes.Sunrise is pretty intense over Upland and Devon Lakes.Sunrise is pretty intense over Upland and Devon Lakes.We start up in grey, soggy conditions.Still ascending but thinking seriously about turning back.Defeated for today! Summit is in clouds above us here.Devon Lakes are brilliant.I was very happy to have a tarp so I could at least keep my head and shoulders out of the sack without getting soaked.My setup for the bivy. Kept me dry through a LOT of rain! Rocks and trekking poles are critical to making this shelter work.
