Charlotte Ding climbed Mt. Cho Oyu, the 6th highest mountain in the world!!!!!

On September 26, 2019, Pacific Academy Irvine student Charlotte Ding climbed Mt. Cho Oyu, the 6th highest mountain in the world, reaching 8,009 meters in elevation. Although she did not reach the summit due to poor weather and the threat of avalanche, by reaching over 8000 meters, Charlotte both broke her own record and qualified to climb Mt. Everest ~ at 8,848 meters, the highest mountain in the world.

The remarkable feat occurred in Tibet China, where Charlotte has since returned to base camp Lhasa, and then descended to sea level to rest and recover.

We are so proud of you Charlotte!!!👍👍👍
