Mount Everest

Laurie Skreslet back on Mt. Everest

The first Canadian to climb Mount Everest is back on the peak, this time with a British army expedition trying to scale the world's highest mountain.

Laurie Skreslet, 56, of Calgary, is settling in for 80 days of climbing on Everest, acting as a safety advisor for the high-altitude cameraman attempting to document the British expedition. He'll also film the climbers as they push up the 8,848-metre mountain. Read full article by David Pugliese (CanWest News Service).
