The past ten years, I’ve spent this day behind various bars. My Guinness game and my Jameson-pouring arm are strong, but we’re changing up old patterns this year.

We decided their snow-packed conditions, combined with overnight temperatures in the low teens, suggested that attempting to summit the mountain in the dark was beyond our current skill level. Driving through Winter Storm Stella on Tuesday was hairy enough for one trip. We’ll revisit today in the bright sunlight.
