What no cuy? Can‘t wait to hear more about it on our next trip up to the mtns. Congrats on some great accomplishments and an incredible 2008. I‘ll try and think of some stuff to test you in ‘09.

It‘s not often that you get to smash your own altitude record twice in one week! Good tip on sleeping slightly upright to assist with the high altitude sleep apnea – I'll try that the next time I'm tossing, turning, and tent-bound. Congrats to both of you – guide or no guide, you still had to haul your own asses up those ridiculously steep slopes. Oh, and guides do fall in crevasses (there are plenty of stories to back that up) so it‘s good that you were prepared for the worst. Here's to your next adventure! You guys make this international peak-bagging thing look all too easy :-)

That had to be a pretty special moment up there at 6am on Christmas day. Great work, and I can‘t wait to see what you do next. I just hope I can keep up with you guys next time we climb.
