Elevation: 17,200'

Pete Van Deventer called and the team is at 17,200’ and are positioned for their summit attempt. The weather changed and the winds were high so they postponed their attempt one day.  The team will be going for it tomorrow and hope to give us a call from the summit.

As you summit and achieve victory both individually and as a team, I think it a great tribute that such a feat of sacrifice, perseverance and survival happens on a day honoring men and woman who gave their all for us. We’ll say a prayer for you while you say a prayer for them at the top. Stay in the fight and stay safe!
