Teaching Climbing In Nepal

Kolin Powick of Back Diamond reports on his trip to Nepal to teach at the Khumbu Climbing Center. I liked this quote:

A heart-in-your-throat flight into Lukla, and three days of walking through Namche took us to the village of Phortse and the home of the Khumbu Climbing Center.  I couldn’t have felt much more lame, carrying my seven kilo pack with camera gear as we passed porters carrying triple loads (91kg). Unbelievable.  To say the walk was spectacular would be quite the understatement.  I almost biffed it countless times as I was constantly staring up at Everest, Lhoste, Ama Dablam and Tawoche. Unreal”
