February 2008 - Everest Simulation
In February, Chris Warner spoke to the freshman about resilience,
passion, teamwork, vision, perseverance, courage, handling stress and other
important characteristics for success. Chris is one of only two or three
dozen climbers in the world to have conquered both K2 and Mount Everest . K2
is a dangerous place, far worse than its better-known neighbor Everest.
Fewer than 300 people have made it to the icy, 28,251-foot top of K2 in
northern Pakistan . The students were later challenged with a web-based
simulation testing leadership and team dynamics using a team ascent of Mount
Everest as the backdrop.
