Mark Jenkins Discusses Climbing Mount Everest at LCCC Tonight

Mount Everest (flickR User/ralky)

Have you ever wanted to climb Mount Everest?

You can get an idea of what it’s like climbing the world’s highest peak by attending Mark Jenkins‘ talk at Laramie County Community College on Tuesday, January 29, at 7 p.m.

Jenkins, a Wyoming native, is an avid climber and writer-in-residence at the University of Wyoming. He climbed Mount Everest last spring as part of a North Face expedition to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first American ascent of the mountain.The free talk, titled ‘Climbing Everest: The Myths, the Macabre and the Madness,’ begins at 7 on Tuesday night in LCCC’s Arp Building, room 128.

Jenkins says a normal expedition up the 29,000 foot mountain lasts three months to allow for acclimation and can cost between $50,000 and $100,000 for food, supplies and gear.

The lecture is part of the University of Wyoming’s Global Area Studies Program and is sponsored by the LCCC International Studies Program.
