The climbers awoke to frost on their car windows. "For the normal population of people this would make their day even worse, but for me it was the first sign of winter. I immediately began looking at the highs and lows in the high peaks," Mulkey wrote. The team traveled into the Beartooth Mountains to scout the climb in hopes that the ice on their cars would translate to ice in the mountains. Alas, despite some amount of ice on the climb, the line was too thin for an ascent. The team retreated, planning to wait a week for colder temperatures.
