Notes

 To be sold for the Khumbu Climbing Center Charity 
 The watch is the personal watch of climber Adrian Ballinger. He wore this watch on his climb to Everest on May 20th, 2018. Upon his return, he decided that rather than keep the watch he would offer it up for auction and donate the proceeds to the Khumbu climbing center. The watch is specially engraved with his name and ascent date and is a rare opportunity to own a watch that has made it to the top of Everest. The Khumbu Climbing Center (KCC) was launched in 2003 and over the past fifteen years has become a successful vocational program for indigenous people. Each winter for two weeks, technical climbing skills are taught along with English language, mountain safety, rescue, and wilderness first aid. Dr. Luanne Freer, who oversees Everest base camp ER, attests that KCC skills and knowledge are saving lives at the roof of the world. Nearly one thousand Nepali men and women have now attended KCC since its inception.
