Climber to talk about surviving Everest avalanche

Jim Davidson returns to CU South Denver with new tale June 20

Posted

Mountain climber and author Jim Davidson will return to CU South Denver, this time to talk about surviving an avalanche on Mount Everest after the April 2015 earthquake.

Davidson was ascending the dangerous Khumbu Glacier on a cold April morning with the intent to climb the highest peak in the world. With all of his planning and many years of training, the climb of a lifetime seemed to be within his grasp, but Mount Everest had other ideas. On the morning of April 25, 2015, while Davidson was on the mountain, a 7.8 magnitude earthquake shook Everest, and surrounding Nepal. The earthquake sent massive avalanches racing down the mountain towards base camp and towards Davidson at Camp One.

Join CU South Denver for an evening with Davidson and hear his incredible tale of being on the highest mountain in the world during this epic disaster. Davidson will be sharing amazing stories, pictures and videos of his ordeal. From his Everest experience, and other invigorating expeditions, Davidson will distill key lessons and tips for you to pursue your adventure of a lifetime.
