Clare is nearly there...
« on: Dec 9 2005, 00:01 »

Hi there,

Clare is en route to becoming the 1st Irish woman to complete the 7 summits...
and for Pat, it will be his second time completing the challenge (!)

"November 29th
Irish team completes the Sixth of Seven

Pat (Falvey) and Clare (O'Leary) have climbed the sixth mountain, Mt Kosciuszko, in their Seven Summits challenge. Although it was cold, wet, windy and sleeting, it was a relaxing summit before the ordeal of Antarctica.

Statement from Australia (Pat and Clare)
"We are delighted to be approaching the final stage of this challenge. It has been an amazing journey as Irish adventurers and now that we have completed Kosciuszko in Australia, we are very excited about the expedition in Antarctica. We have no doubt that this expedition will be demanding, but we believe that as an Irish team, we will succeed in completing our challenge of climbing Mt Vinson."

Clare and Pat head for Punta Arenas in Chile on tomorrow 30th November, where they will be met their team mate, John Dowd, from Waterville County Kerry, on December 2nd. The team then depart to the Antarctic Continent by plane where they will have some time to prepare their gear before flying out once again this time to a glacier located within reach of Mt. Vinson"

Thanks for the update, Daisy.

I wish success for Clare and Pat.  It is very exciting that Clare may be the 1st Irish woman to ascend all seven!

Please keep us posted.

Sorry but without Carstensz Pyramid she has not completed 'em. The Oz one is a copout.

Oh dear - this argument again! I beleive they have plans for Carstenz too but their Antarctic crossing later this year is probably what's holding them up (that and maybe a bit of red tape!)
