Everest and Lhotse: Northface Athlete Hilaree O'Neill Presentation on her Historic Everest Climb
Telluride's own Hilaree O'Neill, Himalayan climber and North Face athlete, will give a stunning presentation on her historic expedition during the 2012 climbing season in Nepal. O'Neill is the first and only woman to connect two 8000 meter peaks in a day. During her time in Nepal, Hilaree became enamored not just with the mighty Himalayan peaks, but also with the wonderful people and culture of the region. This event is a fundraiser for the Ridgway-based dZi Foundation, which focuses on community-led development work in Nepal.
