Ken, aforementioned journeyman from Mount Blanca.  Ken had made most of this journey solo about a month prior and been turned back by inclement conditions.

Dan, Double D, or Uncle Dan, as I affectionately refer to him.  Dan is a fellow Uptowner; he lives about a block from me.  This was his first time ever on such a journey, and he acquitted himself marvelously.  I learned today that his resting pulse rate is something like 43 beats per minute, if that tells you anything.

Jim (or "Supperfly"), with whom I did Uncompahgre last summer.

Me ("The General"), nearing the 20th anniversary...
