why do you want to climb with us?

Grace: I am climbing because I am very passionate about this school and the cause. I visited the O'Brien school in 2014 and fell in love with the people, my surroundings, and even education- because that is when I decided I wanted to be a teacher. Also, most of my family is climbing, and it's something I want to do with them!!


Emma: To raise money for the school and take advantage of an amazing experience.


Rose: My grandma founded the school and it's a good way to support it. Also, many of my family members have climbed it and are climbing it with me. ​

What do you think will be your biggest challenge?

Grace: Most if it!


Emma: Being able to maintain stamina throughout each day. I don't have the strongest lungs so at the top being able to have enough breathing air.


Rose: The actual climbing of the mountain.
