Did your group stay in the Muir Shelter on July 19th, 2013 prior to your summit attempt? After reading your TR, I may have encountered you and your friends. I stayed in the hut for two nights. Although my trip leader warned me that he probably wouldn't be able to make the climb (illness), I flew into Seattle anyway hoping to "hook up" with another team. After reaching Muir, the news spread like wildfire that the "route was out" eliminating any chance of capturing my 47th state HP. I have a profile on SummitPost.
