Training hike with my son for Mt. Whitney this summer. Weather was cool and windy! Especially on the Flatiron itself. I thought about bringing a jacket, but decided not to (that was a mistake...). We checked out the newer, more accessible memorial near the plane wreck site and had planned to do a little more exploring and bag 5024, but the cold and the wind prompted us to descend a bit sooner than originally planned. It started to rain just as we were entering the bowl area on our way down. It turned that area into a slippery slide. One guy just below me warned me to be careful, then he promptly biffed it and slid 20 feet down the slickrock. He was okay, so I guess I won't feel guilty for chuckling :sl:. Of course, I promptly followed that act with a crash and burn of my own. Thankfully, we made it down with nothing more than a couple of minor scrapes and some bruised pride. But trying to hike down that bowl when it's wet is a whole new adventure ....
