Thanks, sounds like quite the experience! It must have been a big mental hit to find your cache gone on the summit push, way to keep heading up (and making it back down safely)!

I love reading about these sort of big independent expeditions!

Whoah.

You said your plane partially crash landed? Do tell.

You're right, that is most definitely worth the read. Strong work!
