Sadly, due to hazardous rock fall conditions, we had to turn around at the base of the 'Grey Tower', about 20,000'. We were about 18 hours from the summit, but lead guide Brian Warren felt the conditions were too dangerous to continue.
However, due to your support and generosity the expedition was a success because we will raise nearly $37,000 for the Make-A-Wish foundation. Each of you were on the trip with me and during difficult times, I thought of all the Make-A-Wish kids and their struggles and they kept me going.
