The experience in NZ has been great and it allowed us to focus on our own safety. It has also brought to my attention that we need to improve a lot more before we can safely climb higher mountains. Now, there will be a break of a month, to allow the body to recover and to focus on the next exciting step.
The final goal is the climb of Muztagh Ata (7,600m) in China in July '11. We will start the planning and preparation in January and as part of the preparation we may as well go back to NZ and climb Tasman in March. This is not decided yet, it is something we didn't include in our original plan, and we'll have to see if time and money for this extra climb can be found.
For the time being I leave you with a fantastic picture taken from the Fox Glacier.
Thank you so much for your support.
