Heather Geluk is in Kathmandu getting ready to make her second attempt at climbing Mount Everest. We'll hear what it takes to prepare for a climb of this magnitude....and we'll get a little lesson on acclimatization from one of the guides.
Over the next few months, we're checking in with Heather Geluk. Heather is making her second attempt to climb Mount Everest.....and as she tackles the two month climb, she's sharing her journey with us and with students at her old high school in Ridgetown.
Last week, Heather spent the week doing a practice run to get ready for the big climb.
This week, she's in Katmandu. I spoke with Heather earlier today. She started off by telling us where she was.
