In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the groundbreaking achievements of the Eddie Bauer-outfitted American Mount Everest Expedition, we asked every member of our Eddie Bauer First Ascent guide team who has reached the summit of the world’s highest peak to sum up the experience in 50 words or less. Melissa Arnot has summited the peak more times than any Western woman, which is likely why she boiled it down for us with such perspective and precision.
Words by Melissa Arnot
Everest is reprieve, seeing that we are not in control, and that is what helps us to learn and grow. Rocky, icy, beautiful and sacred. It is busy, but if we all have respect there is enough mountain for everyone, and we all deserve reprieve.
