Melissa Arnot, The Climb: One Woman Faces Everest
Posted on June 15, 2015

Today, Glamour published the second installment of The Climb, profiling Eddie Bauer guide Melissa Arnot’s attempt to climb Mt. Everest without supplemental oxygen. Her goal was to climb the world’s tallest peak for a record sixth time but 2015 would become another tragic season on Everest. Like most climbing plans, hers shifted after a tragic 7.8-magnitude earthquake hit the country of Nepal and triggered a devastating avalanche that decimated base camp . This second episode profiles her approach toward base camp and then how everything shifted after the earthquake. —LYA Editor

    Watching both instalments you really get a sense of just what a caring person Melissa is. She has a genuine love for the people of the Khumbu and really believes in a giving back way-of-life. The world needs more people like her.
