We were in the valley for the day. On the way out , at about 4 pm, we stopped to observe, with binoculars, climbers (probably 2) about half way up. We have not been able to forget this, and wonder how they are? How long did it take them ? Who were they? Can we find out????

The two climbers were on the Shield. They topped out probably Monday. I saw them make it to Chicken Head Ledge, which is close to the summit, early Sunday evening. Sorry, I don't know who they were. My estimate is they took 5 days 4 nights.
