Photo Gallery: 9 Bad-Weather Epics
We spent 10 hours in our tents during a Mt. Rainier windstorm.
We thought we could outpace the storm with a pre-dawn start. Not the case!
Hiking up Mount Whitney in November in rain jackets and sneakers maybe wasn’t such a great idea.
While attempting to climb Devils Tower on Thanksgiving 2016, we retreated due to freezing temps.
A spring snowstorm hammered the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, but we climbed The Carrot (WI4) anyway.
This was on Mailbox Peak, Washington. The hike was crazy, with weather from all four seasons in 2.5 miles and 4,000 feet.
In April 2018, we experienced 12 feet of snow in 7 days on the Pika Glacier in Denali National Park.
For 18 days, we had giant waves and even a sea spout while deep-water soloing on the Bulgarian Black Sea coast.
We climbed one route at Dorset before -2 temps and a terrifying, slippery belay ledge made us give up.
