A climber's climber

That's how Outside Magazine described Sue Nott of Vail in a profile about three years ago. Nott and climbing partner Karen McNeill are still missing today on Mount Foraker in Alaska. Friends and family members are said to be making their way to Denali National Park and Preserve to be near the area where the women disappeared and, they hope, soon will be found.

Although it is believed the women would have been out of food for at least a week, fellow alpinists say if anyone can survive the conditions on Mount Foraker without basic supplies, it is Nott and McNeill.

Read the latest comments from friends and fellow climbers who saw the women just before they set out on their attempt to be the first women's team to successfully summit on the Infinite Spur route at Canada New / Calgary Herald:
