Stonewalled, again! I'm getting tired of writing reports that end with a failed attempt on some peak or other. So far this winter we have been turned back on more than 4 different peaks! Mount Myra is the latest peak to turn us back and be added to the list.

The long but quick road home. 
We expected good weather and we weren't disappointed. Excellent visibility, cool temperatures, and light snow wouldn't be the undoing of our attempt. An incredible accumulation of recent snow would accomplish that.
