On May 4th 2012 I suffered a cold injury while climbing above the headwall above 14k camp. In temperatures of -20 degrees C and with a 20mph wind (windchill of -33 degrees C) our guides decided we should cache at top of headwall above 16k ft. As the first exped of the season, we had to dig out the fixed ropes. We had spent 3 days before waiting at 14k camp, but the guides chose to wait until now to dig out. In addition, our lead guide decided we should ascend on the 'down' line. Rope damage at the bottom of each anchor point created delays in attaching ascenders at each anchor point on the down line. In the end I suffered an intermediate grade frostbite injury with serious nerve damage to 6 fingers.

But I don't know, the wind wind is really steady and else right now. It's been pretty windy all day and we're hoping at midnight when we leave the tent to go to the filming tonight that wind is gonna die down. I wen out today, two hundred meters maybe cut in the shell. I'm not too sure if that was the smart idea the down like your going maybe
Good evening everyone. I have been so nervous about the speech. I really wasn't sure what to say. In fact the speech is really been through a lot of changes and revision over the past couple of weeks but in the and I realized that there were just a few things I really need to say to my sister Jessie. First I thought I would talk about the day that you were born. ___ I'm gonna take too long but the day you were born was such an exciting day for me because on that day, I became a big sister. I still remember crying because Daddy need me go to help Tap(?) to take my stupid class picture with it don't know what in shock so you know the exact picture I'm talking about but all I really wanted to do with stay home and meet you and finally whole deal I was a big sister now. You were beautiful. I was only 5 but as a big sister. I thought it was my job to take care of you, look after you, show you the ropes, teach you the ways.
