Sending good vibes to my friends @carla.perez.ec, @estebantopomena and @adrianballinger as they are on K2 and heading for the summit tonight. Carla, pictured here, is the first South American woman to climb Everest/Chomolungma without oxygen and is attempting K2 without oxygen. ⁣⁣She guided me to the summit of Everest, and I was so delighted to share the mountain and the summit with her! I love climbing with people of all genders, but there’s a special place in my heart for the energy women bring to the mountains. Having a female guide on our trip changed the dynamics and reinforced how important it is to have women in positions of leadership! ⁣⁣I’m sending all the best wishes and prayers for good weather and safe passage. Go team! #climbforequality ⁣
