Ganga climbed Broad Peak with us in 2013 and selflessly donated her personal High Altitude Porter to assist in the attempted rescue of our Iranian team members. Sadly it was unsuccessful but I'm very happy for her accomplishment on K2. Congrats Ganga!

I thought that characterization a bit overly dramatic myself.

This was on the news last night, fresh off Fontana lake. Wild, huh?

I'm glad you captured that photo because it emphasizes the importance of wearing a helmet while climbing the Lhotse Face, despite the fact that it won't change any of the Sherpa behavior.

Newly discovered photo shows Sange getting Chhering Dorje off the rope after he was stricken by the falling rock. (You can see blood in the background.)We brought him down to a safer place and cajoled a heli, saving the Sherpa's life.

There are 3,247,000 workers in Tennessee () So if 56,000 got pay hikes because of the tax cut, 3,191,000 did NOT get pay hikes. That's 96% who did NOT get a raise or bonus! And you are bragging about that?

After witnessing your performance yesterday I thought I could never be more ashamed of an American politician. Then I saw Trump speaking in England and realized I was wrong.

The US senate just voted nearly unanimously to support NATO, despite the musings of our lunatic in chief. I'm sure Putin is disappointed that Donald isn't able to get them to back off through this angle, any way.

Excellent photo. I have very little memory of the Hillary Step, or what remains of it.
