Site Update Notifications and Expedition Dispatches

This is home for site notifications and dispatches from Alan's expeditions plus updates on Memories are Everything Alzheimer's fund raising activities. Alzheimer's is a devastating disease and the true cause of the disease is unknown. Researchers are making great progress but more is needed. And there is hope.

I have partnered with the Alzheimer's Association, the leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer care, support and research. Their mission is to eliminate Alzheimer's disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health.

100% of your donations go directly to Alzheimer's issues. None go to Alan's climbing expenses. I encourage you to read more about this excellent organization and make your tax deductible donation today.

Denali 2007 Recap

I am now back home for a few days now and feeling better. Well, not a 100% but that is the nature of these climbs. But I am getting it together to leave for Tibet at the end of August for an attempt on Shishapangma at 26,335'.

I want to thanks Debbie L. for being the first person to donate to the Memories are Everything fund - thanks Debbie.

Denali was not what I was expecting. I was helicoptered off the mountain and taken by ambulance to an Anchorage area hospital - the first for me in almost 12 years of high altitude mountaineering.

I have written a long, detailed and graphic account of my climb along with pictures and video. You can find by clicking on this link.

Thanks again for everyone's support and compassion - it matters much more than you may think.

Climb On!
