I, Ralph Turman, had summitted "The Tower" times before, but on this particular day, January 1, 1980, my older brother and I,Ray, had made plans to be the first to summit in the new millenium. That plan did not come to pass for my brother, but for another brother and his sweetheart...Frank and Mary. To whom I would like to tell "Thank you". You both made this summit most special for me. I look forward to many more climbs with you, hopefully in the very near future. Starting out with a party of six, three of whom had to bail out, ending up with the three of us and with an excessive amount of baggage to contend with.

The weather was snowing and blowing while we rested in the meadows, but cleared and gave us a beautiful afternoon...for which we that our Heavenly Father. I had a severe case of the flu and my caring companions nursed me through the whole climb wonderfully. If anyone out there is needing a bit of excitement in there life, this is the adventure for you...but don't wail till the next millenium...AGE TELLS!! Hello Friends and neighbors at the Tower...hope to see you soon. Ralph
