Mike shared this pic with me several years ago as I began a long obsession with the Cassin. For years, I could think of no cooler thing than chillin on the bivy ledge at the top of the Japanese couloir and drying out my mittens. Perhaps the mittens were damp because of a death defying crevasse screamer and a heroic extrication on the glacier below. After 2 AK trips and having not set foot on the route, I can still look at this pic and say, maybe someday...
