Way to Go!

November 14, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

You may remember the long walks we had with our friend, Tanya, over the last 12 months as she prepared for a very strenuous trek in Nepal.

She arrived back in Oz today after a month away and has just sent us three photos of her ascent of the Amphu Lapsta Pass at a gut busting 5850 metres (19,190′). Check out the background in the last photo and the route they were taking.  I don’t think the 20k walks up the You Yangs or along the Rail Trail went anywhere near preparing her for this.

A very gutsy and determined girl and we look forward to catching up with her soon and hearing the full details and seeing more photos.

Well done, Tanya!

    Ditto, well done Tanya! My measly 300m of vertical elevation next week seems a bit paltry, doesn’t it?

    Don’t knock your effort. You don’t go and race up 1950 steps without serious G&D.

    Since you have a guest login, how about a post on your preparation with a photo or two?

    Very well done but not for me.

    June – Nor I

    Yes, wow Tanya! Not for me (I am happy to look at the big ones from the valley below)

    Yikes… I’ll stick to David Attenborough’s Planet Earth Blu-rays thanks.

    I hiked down the Grand Canyon once, “once” being the optimum word. Kudos Tanya for taking on that big of a climbing adventure!
