About two weeks ago, we were standing on the top of the world. It’s dramatically different from my current reality: sitting at home nursing my leg post ACL surgery. The climbing along the northeast ridge kept my attention with up to 10,000’ (3000m) of exposure at times. It’s been difficult for me to want to write about Everest/Chomolungma (the Tibetan name) because our experience was so dramatically different than what the media portrayed. We had very few other teams with us on summit day. When you’re climbing a mountain like Everest, you have to embrace the fact that people from the entire world come together during this short period of time to share the mountain. I will forever cherish the experience and memories and can’t wait to continue sharing with you! #bigmountaindreams #climbforequality
