Winter Ascent of Whitney

We just got word that AAI Guide Ian McEleney and the participants on his Winter Mountaineering program successfully summitted Mount Whitney(14,505').  Ian stated that it was extremely cold and that he was forced to wear his puffy jacket all day.

Some of the members of the Winter Mountaineering program will remain with Ian for the next two days.  Tomorrow they will start a two day ice climbing intensive in the Eastern Sierra.

Congrats to the whole team!
