“I’m Dreaming Of Heaven”

Comatose in the hangar

A woman climber tells her story of an attempt on Denali. I liked these quotes:

    • “…8 middle aged men, 1 ‘mature woman’. This is a recipe for heaven or hell. I'm dreaming of heaven.”
    • No summit. I returned with 10 fingers, ten toes, 9 toenails, and four pounds less than I started. The pink underwear buried on the mountain is mine.”


The photo above is them camping in a hangar waiting for good weather. (Years ago, we spent 4 days sleeping and cooking in a hangar in Juneau waiting for the weather to clear so we could fly to Mt Fairweather. I’m surprised they still let you do that.)

Those pink undies have a story to tell.
