Event Details

October 28, 2013  |  7 p.m.  |  The Mountaineers Program Center

Join us for an exclusive evening with legendary mountaineer and best-selling author Ed Viesturs in a conversation with Fitz Cahall.

ED VIESTURS. A Pacific Northwest icon, author, First Ascent guide, inspirational speaker and world-renowned high-altitude mountaineer who successfully reached the summits of all of the world’s fourteen 8,000-meter peaks without supplemental oxygen. He is one of only a handful of climbers in history – and the only American – to accomplish this.

Perhaps best described by Jon Krakauer, "Ed Viesturs is not merely one of our strongest mountaineers; he’s also one of the most remarkable. He’s demonstrated that it’s possible to climb the world’s highest peaks without taking reckless chances, and without sacrificing one’s honor or integrity. He has never hesitated to help other climbers in need, even when it meant putting himself in danger or sacrificing his own opportunity to achieve a summit. Ed, simply put, is a genuine American hero.”

FITZ CAHALL. If you’ve climbed a mountain or skied the backcountry you’re probably familiar with Fitz Cahall’s body of work. If not, take a few minutes to check out an episode of The Season and listen to a segment of his incredibly popular podcast The Dirtbag Diaries.

Do that and you’ll discover someone who has been described as “one of the most eloquent voices in outdoor media.”

Ed Viesturs' new book, The Mountain: Epic Adventures on Everest, will be available for purchase onsite. 

BENEFITTING:  Tickets and raffle benefit programs at The Mountaineers and Big City Mountaineers that instill critical life skills in underserved youth populations through outdoor adventure and wilderness mentoring experiences.
