CLIMBING: Cholatse

To summit is not to conquer, but to connect. - Cira Crowell

Summiting Cholatse 6,440m/21,130 ft in the heart of Khumbu, Nepal was the culmination of a dream held close to the hearts of Pasang Lhamu Sherpa Akita and Cira Crowell.

Huge thanks and congratulations to climbing team Panuru Sherpa, Pasang Lhamu Sherpa Akita, Lhakpa Gyaljen Sherpa, Tenzing Sherpa, Scott Simper and Cira Crowell!
