June 14 th 2010 – Summit Day
Today was one of those days that you do not want to forget for a long time. With allot of hard work will power and dedication the young explorers stood proudly on the summit of an unclimbed peak, it is now up to them to name the peak, and that part of the Baltoro history has been written.
Seeing them from a distance climbing to the top and being the first expedition this year to reach an unnamed summit in the Karakoram mountain range, made me extremely proud of what they have achieved.
It was not only a physical mountain they were climbing but an internal mountain, growing inside them self's each step of the way. This achievement will make them better people and will change their life's forever. A unique opportunity provided to them that they grabbed on with both hands and treasured all the way to the top.
In today's life we as adults try and protect our kids, taking opportunities to grow away from them, instead of setting them free, giving them wings to fly so that they can discover their own capabilities and who they really are.
With this I would like to thank all my sponsors for giving us all in Pakistan this unique opportunity.
