Wheeler Peak

We did reach our Wheeler Peak goal. We hoped to reach the North ridge - probably at 12,000 feet or so. The wind was really brutal and I was concerned about being blown off the mountain if we tried for the summit.
Here is the view of the summit from our stopping point.
We took shelter in this rock pile.
This picture of Wheeler Peak from the trail - shows the ridge we climbed to (on the right of the peak).
