Hi Tom,

I would be interested in a west rib attempt. I made a west rib attempt in 2005 and conditions were not good, ice was melting out (lots of running water)down low and deep snow at higher altitiudes. We went with the acclimate at the 14,300 camp plan and even made a fuel food drop at the west rib cutoff at 16,500. All the WR guided groups were bailing out at the cutoff. We ended up climbing the regular buttress route and we summited on June 1st. Would like to climb with any potential partner at last a couple times before commiting to this trip.

Call me when you have a chance.
