I originally had Democrat on my list before I became aware of the closure issue. I think we'll take the acclimatization day based on my own experience back in March while at Breckenridge. I had a bit of a headache during our first full day on the mountain. I could tell I was not 100%. After 2 nights at 9000+ feet. I felt pretty good.
I'm encouraged that so far no one has replied with "Are you out of your mind?" I always remind myself and my son that the summit is the goal not the destination. If weather or fatigue mean we have to turn around then that's what we do.
