I’m honored to be on this #climbforequality with @carla.perez.ec, the first South American woman to summit Everest without supplement oxygen. She is one of the mountain guides on the trip. Two days ago, as we were approaching the north col, she stopped me from being blown away by the wind (no joke). The wind was so strong, it swept me off my feet and she ran over to me and braces herself as I clung to her leg. After the gust subsided, we crossed the frozen ice field arm in arm. It’s been a challenging trip so far and I am exhausted from spending seven nights at 21,000’ (6,400m). More to come! Stoked to be sharing this mountain with such a rad group of #himaladies and #himaleias! #everest2019
