Boy oh boy! I struggled
And struggled up that height! Had to stop for 5 minutes every few steps to get my oxygen levels up a bit. Once I got to the ridge line the guide did not let me struggle to the highest point, which i think was sensible. I was also not able to do the via ferrata descent as I had missed the briefing the previous afternoon (the grueling climb to the base camp hut the previous day took me 7 hours and so i had arrived too late for the safety briefing). Again this was a blessing as I was suffering severely at the altitude!! Most of us bad headaches and nausea and feeling dreadful!

After a 2am start of the day I arrived exhausted back at basecamp around 730pm. Quick nap and breakfast and we made our way down the mountain to the bus. We got there about 4pm, and I did get my certificate for climbing the mountain!

Thank you all for thinking of me throughout this mission, and thanks for donating to CF Tasmania on my behalf!
