  11. Hi Alan, i’ve adopted you as my ‘follow a climber on Everest’ prson this year as ive used your website to track other’s progress over the years. Give it your best shot, stay safe and godspeed…

  12. Fantastic Alan!! I think the $196 for each foot doesn’t cut it with all of the rotations you have done, with the acclimation on other peaks to, you must be at 50,000 of climbing so far 🙂

  13. Really pulling for you, best of of luck! Say hello to the top of the world for me. Then get down safe.

  14. Having been to altitude myself before, I have been listening carefully to many things you have said & posted. Across the board, on all factors, you sound spectacular, the conditions sound great. Knocking 1.5 hours off your icefall time is fantastic. That you did it on little sleep is stunning; that you did it without even trying hard… is an off the chart great sign. All lights are green Alan. Thanks for reminding us Alan that its about Alzheimers, so all of us with internet fans, friends & followers, let’s spread the word this week gang!

  15. Love the unabashed passion that you show and share. I am pulling for YOU!

  16. Alan,there is a lot of enthusiasm in your voice and its no wonder why.You’ve got your A game on and yes we are following…Climb On!!

  17. How awesome! I am a partner at NHC where Jay works. Please tell him and his wife that we are keeping up with you all daily and are praying for your safety as you make this final push for the summit. Enjoy the climb!

    Many thanks to you Alan for posting this journey in such detail allowing us to share in this experience.
