  8. 12. Stuck Stuck, same curve as last time. Another round of throwing dirt in front of the tires. For 4 hours we made back and forth attempts at the patches of ice, slowly making it up the mountain If we started slipping toward the edge, we would stop, reverse, and try the patch again With over 2 hours above 18,000 feet only Ethan’s delirious confidence keeps us going
