Just in case anybody wonders, what Trina did was epic for ANYONE! Imagine climbing a 3000 foot wall of granite. The endurance, the pure effort, the weather (it gets real windy up there a ways), the rain at night, sleeping on basically an army cot hanging on that wall, going to the bathroom and hauling EVERYTHING out in the leave no trace ethic. Finally, think about doing it with colitis. We are amazed at this woman.

Dear Trina, this incredible letter came across my email today by a member of the Toronto Crohn’s and Colitis committee that we both know. I am a cousin of yours and the cure that you climb for is one that is very dear to me and my family. Your story is an amazing one and you look like you are doing great. You are clearly a strong person who just wont let this awful disease stop you from living life to its fullest! I wish you all the best of luck with your climb. Keep raising money and find that cure. We must never, never, never, give up! Wishing you the best always, Jordi Greenspoon
