Summit push on hold until clouds lift!!!

With visibility down to 10 ft Wendy and Brooke will hold up at camp 2 until the weather breaks. After their climb to camp 2 the weather decided to come rolling in and put their summit attempt on hold for the moment. Talking with Wendy & Brooke last night they said that visibility was down to about 10 ft and that if it cleared when they awake at about 2am they would proceed with their summit attempt but the weather was not expected to break by then so that means that they will hold up at camp 2 for the day and try again Thursday at 3am in the morning. Let’s keep the good thought coming for them and the weather to break leaving them climbing towards the summit of Baruntse in blue sky and sunshine!!!

Baruntse 7,220 metres (23,688 ft)

About Wendy Booker

In June of 1998, this 55 year old mother of three was diagnosed with relapsing-remitting MS after experiencing balance problems, blurred vision and numbness on her left side. When first diagnosed, Wendy was devastated. But it took very little time for her to transform anguish into inspiration. She immediately turned her hobby of casual running into a continuous pursuit and has now completed nine marathons.

Mountain climbing became the next conquest. Wendy learned about a team of mountain climbers with Multiple Sclerosis who were attempting to climb Mt. McKinley (Denali) in Alaska. With no previous climbing experience, she dedicated a year to hard training and set off with them in 2002. Although weather conditions prohibited the team from completing, Wendy attempted the summit again in 2004 on her own and she succeeded!

The feeling of accomplishment she experienced propelled her next aspiration: to climb the highest mountain on each continent. Just five years later, Wendy Booker has successfully reached the top of six of The Seven Summits – Mt. Kilimanjaro, Mt. McKinley, Mt. Elbrus, Mt. Aconcagua, Mt. Vinson Massif and Mt. Kosciuszko. Mt. Everest, the highest mountain on earth, still awaits for 2010.
