I’ve got a quick update on Alan Arnette’s who is off climbing Denali at the moment as he prepares for his return to Everest next Spring. If you haven’t been following his dispatches from the mountain, Alan is currently at high camp and waiting for a weather window to open up so that he and his team can go for the summit. Right now, it looks like that summit window should open up around the middle of the week or so, and he’s hoping to make his bid by the end of the week. Currently, he, and the rest of the team are just sitting around camp, trying to amuse themselves while they wait for their opportunity. What’s the favorite pass time in camp? How about an Ice Axe throwing contest!
Alan is preparing to return to Everest next year as he will be attempting to climb to raise money and awareness for Alzheimer’s Disease. He’s hoping to raise $100,000 which he will donate to the Cure Alzheimer’s Fund. It’s a great organization, and a great cause, and I would encourage everyone to contribute to Alan’s efforts.
