    Any updates on Cory Richards and Topo climbing on the new route without O’s? I knew they were going dark for a bit but wondering if you had heard anything?

    Thanks Alan, its great keeping up with what is going on, thanks to you. I love Jake Norton’s picture of the ridge. And his respectful comments about Mallory and Irvine.

    Hi Alan!

    A BIG fan of your posts. Have been following along for years. Maybe you know this already and with that many people on the mountain i realize it is impossible to cover everything. In Denmark we have Rasmus Kragh attempting to summit for the third time without O’s. He’s attempted the north side twice (in 2017 and 2018) but failed to summit due to high winds. He’s currently 30 meters from camp 4 and will rest there for 3-5 hours before attempting to summit. Hopefully, he’ll be on the summit within the next 15-18 hours.

    This is probably not that special considering how many have summited without O’s already, but he is the first Dane that really looks like he’s going to pull it off. His progress can be followed here: http://www.rasmuskragh.com/rasmuslive/
    Scroll down a bit and those interested can watch the attempt live.

    Best regards
    Michael
