Youngin looking for help
« on: Nov 7 2004, 11:37 »

Hi there,
I live in New Zealand and have found i'm fascinated in Everest. I'm only 13 but would love to set a record and summit all seven mountains but especially Mount Everest.  What books could i read and what training would i do? This may be hard but the only climbing i have done is basic rock climbing and abseiling.  I have a high fitness level and love the cold.  I can get the money but how do i start? Thanks in advance

Hi Rachel,

take a look around the forums, there are already several topics covering subjects like this.
You need a lot of experience in different fields relating to the Everest climb: cold, altitude, technique, (long) expeditions, mental training, gear and clothing knowledge etc.
Those you should acquire on other mountains, courses, trips with experienced people etc.
"He who climbs upon the highest mountains laughs at all tragedies, real or imaginary." -- Friedrich Nietzsche
