Hey RMI. This is Linden Mallory calling from Island Peak High Camp. We touched the top today. We had a pretty phenomenal climb. Everybody made it, 100% success! The morning started out clear. We had beautiful stars as we were climbing. Nice morning sun. And then right as we started down, we had more snow. Keeps snowing pretty consistently since early this afternoon. The afternoon made the descent a little tricky with all that new snow on top of the rock, but the team did well. We handled it without too many problems and now we are looking forward to heading downhill tomorrow. We will be down lower in the valley tomorrow and will try and send out some photos and a written account. So that’s the news. We’re all really happy about the climb and happy to be down. And looking forward to getting out of here. Take care.

You ladies are truly amazing (you too, Linden)!  We are so proud to say that we are pals of such mountain climbing rock stars. Now come on home safely.  We can’t wait to hear the tales of adventure in person.

You ladies totally rock. It was so exciting to read the news from Linden.  What a great accomplishment for all of you and perhaps most especially Linden!  Can’t wait to see you and hear tales of this great adventure. Safe travels home.

Was at a track meet checking the site all day.  I heard from Mac while watching the Hunger Games.  We are all so happy for all of you and Dana Marie, glad you touched the top!  Your drive and stamina and training paid off.  We miss you and can’t wait to see you.

Fan-f’ing-tastic!! We are so happy, proud . . . And relieved!  We had been checking the blog all day for a report. When it was posted, we were at Thurston’s and Christopher’s RLL game. Coach Rise of the Yankees - I think you know him - was checking with me between innings. When I told him the report of a successful summit had just been posted, he seemed more pleased than even he had been with Christopher’s pitching - and Christopher had been pitching very well. Hey beautiful women - come home with Godspeed. Your men miss you. Linden - thanks for getting these macho chicks to the summit and back safely.

AMAZING!!! What an awesome accomplishment.  Having seen the You Tube videos of Island Peak I am even more impressed with your stamina, will and, most especially, your bravery.  I certainly did marry well!!  The bar art fits and is perfect, so get it.  E is very happy with her rooming situation for next year.  Stay safe!  Can’t wait to see you,  Love, C
