69 Days in Tibet - Quest for the Seventh Summit - Enrique Rodriguez

In March 2010, Enrique Rodriguez left sunny sea-level San Francisco
for the icy slopes of Mt. Everest, the highest mountain in the world.
With cold-weather resilience developed over years of waiting for the
school bus in New Hampshire and winter camping skills honed high in
the alpine zone of Mt. Washington, Enrique will discuss his 1st
Himalayan expedition in pursuit of his 7th "Seven Summit."

How long does a Himalayan expedition take? What's day-to-day life like
on an 8,000 meter peak? How do you train for Himalayan climbing?  What
gear was bulletproof and what gear totally failed? What's it like
climbing in the "Death Zone?" Did he meet the youngest kid to climb
Everest? ... the top 8,000 meter women? ... any famous Himalayan
veterans with numerous ascents of 8,000 meter peaks? For the answers
to these questions and many more, come September 14th for an exciting
multimedia journey to the "roof of the world!"
