We take a rest and prepare for more.

Marshall Deckinger '81 is an emergency room physician who practices not far from Mt. Princeton. Months before the trip, he was coaching us on what to expect, and how to train for the climb. He and his wife Caroline showed up for the climb with a 4x4 complete with an oxygen cylinder in case someone should suffer from altitude sickness. During our rest he measured blood oxygen levels. Shortly thereafter, one of our climbers felt ill, and Marshall took him under his care and escorted him back to the 4x4s. For his service to the class of '76, Marshall was made an honorary member.
