Trisul Attempt. Charlie Winger, Laura Zaruba, Clay Hutchison, Kim Knox and I attempted to climb the west face of Trisul. Our high point was reached on September 30 when Hutchison and I established Camp IV at 6700 meters at the end of technical difficulties after fixing 2400 feet of rope. We descended on October 1 because of high winds and unstable snow.
