One month ago: standing on the top of the world. It was a magical and terrifying moment. Magical to see the world from such a position. Terrifying to know we had a long way to go along a very exposed, cold ridge until we were safe. I learned so many things after spending 40 days in Tibet and 32 days on Everest/Chomolungma. We have deeper reserves than we think. You can cover a lot of ground with a pounding headache. Pressure breathing works. Showering doesnโ€™t need to happen as often as you think. Ice in drinks is an amazing luxury. I am a more patient person. Being alive is a gift. Life is fragile.#climbforequality Thank you to my sponsors who allow me to live my #bigmountaindreams: @keen @fattire @patagonia @gaiaherbs @rylo @clifbar @julboeyewearna @lekiusa @movementskis @prethelmets @allgoodbrand

    Hey Caroline!

    Just wanted to let you know that Nick, the kids, and I all followed your climb and were amazed at all you have accomplished! We prayed for you and Rob, and kept you both in our thoughts and conversations during your climb. It’s awesome to read your thoughts on the climb and lessons learned. I had to laugh when I read your “Showering doesn’t need to happen as often as you think.” That’s definitely a life lesson that I’ve learned as a Mom ๐Ÿ˜‰ Congratulations on achieving your goal, prayers and positive thoughts for a swift recovery from ACL surgery, and best wishes for your upcoming marriage!
