Greg,

You are an awesome guy who has completed and awesome accomplishment! Way to go on reaching your goal. =D> =D> =D>

When you return from your mission in Brazil, let's go climb some peaks together!
According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you.

Greg, you should be a real man and include 14,000-foot Sunlight Spire in your list. You still have a few days before you leave, right?

For real though, congrats man. We'll miss you around these parts.
“There are two kinds of climbers: those who climb because their heart sings when they’re in the mountains, and all the rest.” - Alex Lowe

"There have been joys too great to describe in words, and there have been griefs upon which I cannot dare to dwell; and with those in mind I say, 'Climb if you will, but remember that courage and strength are nought without prudence, and that a momentary negligence may destroy the happiness of a lifetime. Do nothing in haste, look well to each step, and from the beginning think what may be the end.'" - Edward Whymper

Congratulations, Greg! I guess the ankles all healed.

+1 with Globreal ! What I am hoping for is that some time spent at sea level will slow you down so we can go climb together when you return.

I am very happy for you, brother. Impressive!!

It has been a privelage to be a part of a few of these climbs with you my friend. I truly mean you are my hero especially after the Hangerman accident.

So to once again touch on what Jim said.

“The best climber in the world is the one who is having all the fun.” – Alex Lowe
"To travel, to experience and learn, that is to live" - Sherpa Tensing Norgay (first person to Summit Mt. Everest)
"Wilderness is not a luxury but a necessity of the human spirit" - Edward Abbey
" Don’t be afraid to move out of your comfort zone. Some of your best life experiences and opportunities will transpire only after you dare to loose."
