Leaving Clovelly Base Camp

If you happened to be in Clovelly this week you may have been a bit surprised to see some of our students marching up the hill with straws and goggles!

This is all part of their project on Everest and the idea is to help them gain an insight into coping with the poor visibility and low oxygen levels they would encounter on a real Everest climb.  Working together in pairs they took turns to walk with the googles on, breathing through straws.  It looks like very hard work to me!
