I summited Everest on May 21, 2011 and posted this audio dispatch directly from the top of the world using a satellite phone. This was the third of my 7 Summits climbs for Alzheimer’s.
It was an emotional experience from a mountaineering perspective but more so on behalf of Alzheimer’s individuals, their families, caregivers and researchers. Read the full trip report for all the details.
