  14. Best of luck from Germany for your two objectives. Following you blog is most fascinating and inspiring. Wish you to get on top, but getting up is optional, getting down mandatory.

  15. Hi Alan,

    All the best tonight to you and the IMG team. I am following the team closely. Goodluck and stay safe….to you and the entire team.


  16. Best of luck Alan for the climb tonight. You sound great – especially your voice, which is a great sign. Amazing time from C3 to C4 too. Lets hope you get there – you sure deserve it.

  17. 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.

  18. 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!

  19. 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!
