Meagan McGrath has spoken about why she stopped her original plans to goto K2. Initially she was going to go with 1 other climber and no one else. However, this climber got injured. But she still wanted to go. Instead she joined Field Touring Alpine, a group that leads less experienced climbers to the top of some the highest mountains in the world.
However, they not only added her to their list to climb K2, but also made her one of the leaders in the group. She will be responsible for helping others in the group reach the top of K2. She said that she will also be learning from the other experienced climbers in the group as she goes along.
