We stand on the ridge at 13,400, the high point of our journey.

After our off-trail excursion and the scramble to the ridge, hiking along the ridge is a relief. However, we had agreed that we would start our descent at noon "no matter what." It is now almost 1 pm, and we are about 700 feet shy of the summit. All are tired, some are exhausted. We hold a meeting and decide to display the banner then turn back.
