Well, I am finally finished dealing with the stresses of training, preparing, packing and re-packing. I guided all summer and then trained for another month (all the while trying to climb for myself) to get ready for the full alpine exam. The 10 days lived up to there reputation, by bringing on the fire and brimstone. We climbed and guided in the most assorted of conditions, all the while being scrutinized under the hairy eyeball.
While in the back of the line, I managed to keep things casual by taking pictures and video. I got enough footage to put a short video together. For those interested in taking a peek into the day of an ACMG guide take a look.
