Her determination is at the same time both frightening and awe-inspiring, isnĀ“t it?

Yes, it is. Oh, and I like how Jordan actually shows her development as a climber and a person, too. I'm not sure when the last time was that I noticed character development in a non-fiction book.
I am fascinated by stories of climbers. Must check this one out. Thanks!

It is a very, very grim read, but entirely fascinating.
Oh, wow. I'm not sure I even *want* to try to imagine what exactly that must have taken -- not to mention being absolutely incapable of putting myself in her place to begin with. Jesus!!

The exclamation marks in this post actually represent my reaction to reading this part. This is why I ended up missing a couple of May Fest events this morning...I was up reading way beyond a reasonable bedtime. I just had to find out how this story ended.
I can't blame you.

I don't know - that just sounds plain daft to me. You don't climb up mountains with broken limbs, you chill out at home and make everyone run around for you! ;)

Most of the serious climbers mentioned in this book are totally bonkers. Many seemed to have died while climbing. You'd think there may be a link? ;)
