Windy, Windy, Windy... That describes how last night was.Thank god for
earplugs, that's all I can say. Up early at 6:30am, breakfast, then we hit
the trail for a 7 hour day. The only way to really describe this hike, is
to step on a treadmill at the incline on the steepest setting, do it at a
walk for 7 hours, only stopping to pee and have a 30 minute lunch. We did
manage to get up to the lava tower at 15,000 ft for some great acclamation.
Tonight, we are sleeping at 13,000 ft and hoping to get some rest before
heading to 16,000 ft and the last camp. Tomorrow night, we head up to the
summit God willing. One of the Climbers is doing a short guest blog and I
would like to share that with you now...

This has been the greatest challenge of my life. It has also been the
greatest experience of my life. There is no better way to celebrate 20
years of testicular cancer to be free and living life by challenging
yourself to do heights, experiences and adventures.
Thank you all for the sat messages, please keep them coming and don't stop.
Peace out from the Baranco camp everyone is in great spirits and is excited
