Twenty-five years ago Cold War Enemies, united by climbing, stood together on the highest point on earth honoring world peace and the environment. Join us September 17 to celebrate this ground-breaking anniversary. 

Heralded as the most successful Everest climb in history, the the Peace Climb was the culmination of a three-year American-led effort to demonstrate to the world what could be achieved through friendship and cooperation. It also succeeded in removing more than two tons of trash left by previous expeditions.

Join Jim Whittaker, American, Russian and Chinese climbers, and The Mountaineers on September 17 in celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Mt. Everest Peace Climb. We'll turn the spotlight on what people all over the world truly want: peace and a safe, clean planet for their children.
