Friday’s story on record-setting Mt. Everest climber Melissa Arnot of Ketchum contained an incorrect statement about one of her achievements. It should have read that, in 2009, Arnot tried to become the first American woman to summit Mt. Everest without the use of supplemental oxygen, but she ended up using oxygen on her climb. The feat still hasn’t been accomplished yet by an American woman, she added. The Express regrets the error.
