I wish them both safe climbs....which doesn't mean a summit, but a return :)

Wow...with these women, Apa Sherpa going for his 20th summit, and the 13 yr old....'tis an interesting time in the Himalayas....and I am sure there are more stories I am missing.

Is Discovery doing Beyond the Limit again?

I was on the Himex site, and didn't see anything mentioned with them...hmm...oh well.

Reading the sites gives me something to do at work, ha.

I've been looking for the same thing and haven't found anything. Hope they are...

After a weather delay on Saturday, Oh Eun-Sun has summited Annapurna.

Congrats, and I hope she gets down safely.
