Gratitude and Excitement

Many thanks to Nico for providing this photo from the 2007 Belgian expedition!

As our departure dates approach and we scramble with logistical questions about visas, permits, and what kind of harmonicas to bring, we want to take a moment to express our gratitude to the many individuals, organizations, and corporations that have already provided huge support to our expedition.  The American Alpine Club has provided us with two generous grants — the Lyman Spitzer Cutting Edge Award and the Mountain Fellowship Grant — and we have received generous gear sponsorships from Rab and Patagonia.  The National Outdoor Leadership School has provided us support from the Instructor Development Fund, and we’ve also received a generous corporate sponsorship from Chicago Steel.  On top of all of this, we feel the support of many friends and well-wishers from within and beyond the climbing community– people who have provided us with photos, ideas, and lots of positive energy.  Many thanks to all!
