Wow! This is going to knock down ratings for the final matches of FIFA Women's World Cup Canada 2015!

Stay healthy and make a good run for it!

Following you from Kansas City. Best wishes to you Andrew. Remember that the number 1 goal of any climbing adventure is to come home safe. Everything else is gravy.

Rootin' for you, Andrew! I enjoyed watching you disappear across the LB-Blanca traverse last year - hoping for clear skies and no injuries!

Oh good, I needed something else to do, after the Tour Divide record just got crushed!
