For the first time, Matt Moniz and his climbing partner and dad, Mike Moniz, are taking two different paths. Matt will be leading a group of four eighth graders, including his twin sister, and two mothers, including his own, on a trek through Nepal which will include visiting a Nepalese school, a stop at Everest Base Camp and a summit attempt on Kala Patthar a smaller Himalyan peak at 5,545 m (18,192 ft).
Mike Moniz will be heading to Nepal to tackle Mt. Everest and Lohtse, the tallest and fourth tallest mountains in the world, respectively. If all goes well, Mike will attempt Cho Oyo, a third 8,000 meter peak following the other two.
Climb7 will be tracking the two expeditions separately. Stay tuned for updates!
