In their current attempt called, "BASEClimb 2", Glenn and Heather (a 38-year old corporate executive), together with Marta Empinotti of Vertigo Base Outfitters, have trained to hone the mental and physical skills necessary to successfully climb and jump off 'The Ogre' a 23,900-foot mountain in the Karakorum Himalaya, Pakistan. The jump will break the current world record. The story of this jump will be told in an international documentary film, in this website, and also in a book. Be sure to follow the project's progress in the expedition diary and check out all the interesting links found here. They hope you will be inspired to reach for your own 'impossible dream'!
