 Gary Guller plans to go to Mongolia in 2002 and let Everest wait a Year until 2003.

Last Spring 2001,disabled mountaineer Gary Guller attempted to summit Mt. Everest. In 1986, Gary suffered a spinal cord injury in a climbing accident. His neck was broken and the nerve roots going to his left arm were pulled out of the spinal cord. Despite experimental surgery, the paralysis was irreparable and he made the decision to have his left arm amputated.

Gary wants to raise awareness and encourage disabled people that "anything is possible". On Everest last Spring on his "Anything is Possible Everest Expedition", Tunc Findik and Kipa Sherpa reached the Summit, but Gary turned around just not feeling comfortable. [Always better to wait for another day when you don't feel comfortable on Everest!]

The primary goals of the "Anything is Possible" expeditions is to raise awareness and support for the potential of people with disabilities. Look for Gary to return to Everest for another attempt in Spring 2003, but for 2002 he plans Mount Khuiten (5896 meter) Mongolia's highest peak.

In far western Mongolia lie the Altai Mountains, the habitat of the lynx, argarli sheep and the snow leopard. In the most remote western corner is the Altai Tavan Bogd ("Five Holy Peaks") mountain range. In this range lie Monglia's highest peaks - Mt. Malchin, Mt. Nairandal and Mt. Khuiten - and Mongolia's longest glacier, the Potanii, stretching over 11 miles. The area offers great trekking for those with less of an inclination to climb.
You'll have the opportunity to climb Malchin and Nairandal, which marks the intersection of the Russian, Chinese and Mongolian borders. "We'll also take a crack at climbing Khuiten, Mongolia's highest peak. The journey to base camp gives us plenty of time to meet the local Kazakh herders of the region. Great climbing and hiking in a largely undiscovered corner of the world. Where else can you wander across the Russian border without a visa!? E-mail or call for detailed itinerary. ", Gary

The Peaks: Malchin "Herder" (4037 meters/13,240ft) rises directly behind Base Camp. It's a rock scramble requiring no technical equipment, yet affords tremendous views over Russia and the glaciated peaks of Altai Tavan Bogd.

Nairandal "Friendship" (4082 meters/13,388ft) is so named because it lies on the triple border of Russia, China and Mongolia. An easy snow plod up the glacier.
Khuiten "Cold" (4374 meters/14,350ft) is the highest point in Mongolia. The classic route follows the NW ridge, approximately 400m vertical. The upper sections of the ridge approach 45Ί and can be hard ice. A single tool is sufficient, although you should be confident in use of crampons. We set up a fixed rope for the final 100m pitch.
