Melissa Arnot, In the Aftermath of the Nepal Earthquake
Posted on July 1, 2015

For the past three weeks we’ve been profiling the powerful stories of the earthquake and the aftermath in Nepal. Today, we are publishing the powerful third episode of The Climb from Glamour Magazine, providing insight on Melissa Arnot’s personal and climbing experience during the tragedy as well as her drive to continue the philanthropic efforts of The Juniper Fund—an organization she co-founded with fellow Eddie Bauer guide David Morton to assist families of high-altitude workers killed in the Himalayas.—LYA Editor

The summary: When Melissa Arnot set out to summit Everest for a sixth time ­­­without supplemental oxygen, her goals were clear. Then an earthquake hit just a few days into her climb, wiping out Everest base camp and leaving much of Nepal in ruins. Now her goal is to support the Nepalese families affected by the quake, and spread her message of support to the world.
