Wow! I am rather honoured to be one of the “Highlighted 2015 Winners” of the American Alpine Club 2015 Live Your Dream Grant.
At the end of the day though, it is just climbing. I am sure the timing of the announcement was such that it did not detract from causes and people who are in true need of help i.e. the Nepal earthquake victims and Nepalese people. After some research, I decided to make a donation to Direct Relief.
I would love to find a way to make my effort on El Cap benefit this cause. If anyone has any ideas, please let me know.
