HOW - High Altitude Mountaineering Gear!!
COMMENTS: Very serious Climb - made a day hike to Camp Muir & Back - take sunscreen, sun goggles and a buff for your neck, chin and lower face; you can get sun burned under the chin, inside the mouth and nose crossing the Muir Glacier due to the reflected sunlight off the snow
