I first mentioned Nicki Branch a month ago when she finished climbing Kilimanjaro and was just getting started with her Seven Summits bid. Well, she’s not sitting on her laurels in pursuing her goal. Nick is currently on Aconcagua, and you can read her latest dispatches from the mountain as she prepares to go for the summit. The latest news has her at Camp 1 and setting off for Camp 2 a few days ago. I’m sure we’ll hear more soon.
Meanwhile, on the front page of her website she lays out her ambitious plans for reaching her goal. After Aconcagua, she plans to climb Kosciuszko (March), Denali (June), Elbrus (July), Vinson (December) in 2007, and Everest during the Spring season of 2008. No word yet on Carstensz Pyramid, but I’m willing to bet it’ll make it’s way onto the list before we’re all said and done.
Good luck Nicki, we’ll be following your adventures and pulling for you. Thanks again Alan!
