Resilience: K2 and Broad Peak Climbs with Sophie Helenek

  • La Grua Center 32 Water St Stonington, CT, 06378 United States (map)

Mountain climber, mother, author, human rights activist and inspirational speaker.

Mountain climber Sophie Helenek will discuss her adventures climbing Broad Peak and K2 in the Karakoram mountains of  India, China, and Pakistan.  After three unsuccessful attempts in which she battled white-out conditions, an avalanche, and frostbite, a successful fourth attempt was rendered bittersweet by the tragic loss of one of her team members.  Through stories both harrowing and exhilarating, Sophie will inspire audiences to climb their own mountains, whether literally or figuratively!
