Ed Viesturs: The Will to Climb

After surviving a scary avalanche, Ed Viesturs is the first American to summit all 14 of the world’s highest mountains without supplemental oxygen.

Precisely what a terrific person with extraordinary skills and accomplishments. He was raised in the same town that I was and still stay in, Rockford Illinois, which is anything BUT, high altitude environment! Machine Tools and cornfields! We did cheer Ed on as we heard about his latest ventures.
