The Khumbu Climbing School

In late January, Adam and I traded our skis for our huge duffle bags, full of ice climbing gear and warm down parkas, to go volunteer at the Khumbu Climbing School, teaching Sherpas how to be safe in the mountains. My friend, Amy Bullard - who was the 2009 director of KCS - had been raving about KCS and offered a few times for me to come along.
