We camped for a night on the West Rib at 16,200', then Gordon and I attempted the summit the next day (Norm decided to stay behind in camp). However, we found we weren't properly acclimatized and were moving very slowly, and Gordon was also having trouble keeping his feet warm. By mid-afternoon we'd only reached 17,500', so we decided to retreat.
