    She is indeed. I think some of the shit she takes is as much about that as being female.

    Caroline Gleich Harrassment Story

    Just saw on her social media that she blew her ACL but is still going to give Everest a go in six weeks. Crazy.

    Crazy selfish.

    Puts those with her at uncessarily increased risk.

    Why? Plenty of people have done all sorts of stuff without their ACL. You don't "need" it, necessarily, depending on the activity. My understanding of Everest is that your lungs matter more than your knees.

    Idk if “all sorts of stuff” equates with climbing Everest, but hey, anything’s possible I guess

    Don’t you need your knees for the decent, which is more dangerous than the ascent?

    Plenty of people ski without ACL’s... it’s extremely common.

    No way I would do Everest without an acl. Or with one for that matter. Even the following summer climbing walk up 14ers after surgery put me out of commission for the follow on day.

    It is surprising how many people ski without and acl. My friend did it for years because he did not have insurance. I met a couple older guys this year skiing without them and there was Askel Svindal? skiing on the world cup circuit without one. Crazy.

    I won't make a judgement on Caroline's decision though. She knows what she can do better than us.

    It is more about the persons individual anatomy as well as the activity as whether you "need" an ACL to do the activity. Most people experience compromise in most activities. Most people who don't feel compromise most of the time still do under extreme activity.

    she’s got heart just for still considering a trip like that, she’s nice in person, I hope she does alright. there’s my two cents.

    It would be one thing if she had a few big summits under her belt while missing her acl. This seems ill advised

    Although I've boosted my internet IQ recently by posting numerous comments on articles without reading them first. Baby steps.

    sure but if she had avvy 3 skills she sure wouldnt have needed a piss poor #metoo excuse
    for not having the knowledge and skills to pass the certification
    and judging from the increadable"I " manifesto article she seems to think she had those skills
    that none of the instructors or peers in the class think she had

    I have skied through ACL tears that happened in December where I delayed surgery until May twice, logging another 60+ days without an ACL each time.

    With a decent brace, very dedicated PT and around 1hr a day on a spin bike, I was probably 90% of the +ACL ski ability within 6 weeks. Walking on the other hand, remained painful and sort of with a limp for months, but that was mostly due to bone bruising that occurred when the ACL tore and the knee subluxed.

    I could see where this type of opportunity may not come up again and I'd want to push for it; but mentally it would be hard knowing my body wasn't at 100% for such an aggressive goal.
    Move upside and let the man go through...
