Reinhold will not be available for rescue missions, he will be at Scott and
Michelle's Wedding.
You guys will be on your own.
 Besides, there is no need for a restaurant, Switchback & Meadows Ed have
enough spare calories between the two of them to make it down without any

On Saturday the summit push will be executed no matter the dangers and lack
of oxygen.  After some time at the summit, an orderly retreat will be made
back to civilization.
