Climbing the World to End Alzheimer's

Part of every big climb is to document it with a complete trip report, pictures, frequently asked questions and perhaps a video.

All this is now complete and posted on my main site. These are the links:

If I were to summarize my experience, I would have to say it was one of the more satisfying expeditions I have undertaken. I felt very well prepared as a result of my training but also felt I was able to apply my previous 8000m experiences in a way that I had not been able to in the past.

I was extremely pleased with Phil Crampton and Altitude Junkies. They provided the right amount of support without being overbearing. And their food was amazing. I did not loose weight for the first time on a big climb.

People always ask what’s next. Well, to be honest, I don’t know. I have dreams and will see if I can make them real but if I only climb here in Colorado, that will be fine – there are many peaks I have not touched, routes to be explored and skills to be developed. I understand how fortunate I have been to have climbed where and what I have.

Finally, while the objective is to climb a mountain, my teammates made this climb especially enjoyable. Please enjoy a few pictures below.

As always, I want to ask that if you enjoyed following my climb, please consider making a donation to one of the Alzheimer’s non-profits. 100% to them and nothing ever to me.

Please Donate for Alzheimers Today

OK, take a visit to the report and pictures. I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed making them. Let me know what you think.

Climb On!
Alan
