Summit Climb Begins Tomorrow!

Hi everyone, ghostwriter #2 here, wanting to update you all that Georgina is sleeping at Camp 3 tonight (7,100 m) and will climb to the South Col (8,000 m) and get some sleep before they start their summit climb at 9 pm tomorrow. If all goes as planned, our girl should be standing at the very top of our world day after tomorrow, May 12!

Some other updates: the team unfortunately lost three climbers due to illness. They also got caught in a windstorm at Camp 2 and 74-mph winds shredded her tent, but Georgina is feeling well regardless. She even did yoga at 6,400 m (and wanted to give a shout-out to Gita Wenaweser for the yoga routine)!

Kathy, who is also climbing in support of women in the Congo with Georgina, is doing well and ready for the summit climb too.

She also wanted to give a special thanks to her employer, McKinney Rogers, for supporting her on this climb, to Ning for her website, and to the organizations she is doing all of this for, International Medical Corps and VDAY.
