Heather Geluk's second attempt at climbing Mount Everest is over.

Over the past couple of months, we've been journeying with Heather Geluk. Heather grew up in Ridgetown and now lives in England....but for the past two months,
Heather's been in Nepal to make her second attempt at climbing Mount Everest.
Over the past two months, we've been chatting with her by satellite phone as she went
higher and higher....waiting for the right window to climb to the summit. Through it all she's dealt with jet streams tearing their campsite apart, bitter cold and bitter heat, strong winds and lots of ice and snow. Just over a week ago her expedition went for the 88 hundred metre summit. Did Heather make it? Well she's on the line to tell us.
