  22. Greetings from India ! All the Best, safe journey up & down!

  23. This post brought tears to my eyes. No one deserves this summit more than you, Alan. You’ve worked so hard for it. I will be thinking of you and holding my breath until your safe return. Best wishes for a successful climb.

  24. Very inspiring update – climb on and safe!

  25. We’ve all been with you every step of the way Alan. Your last audio dispatch made me cry, listening to the your story of your Mum’s Alzheimer’s & I am about to donate now. Go summit that great hill & have a safe journey back!

  26. Go Alan Go!

  27. I’m still amazed at how strong you sound but I shouldn’t be because I know how hard you’ve trained for this. Running up and down multiple 14ers per week hasn’t hurt your chances and you definitely have the mental toughness to get to the summit and back. Stay safe. Climb on!
