Ed Viesturs attempts record summit

I saw Viesturs talk at a National Geographic lecture a few years back. Amazing guy and extremely well disciplined. Well, I guess that’s how you get to climb the 14 highest peaks in the world without oxygen. Did you know I ran an eight minute mile today? 😉

Local climber attempts record summit (5/10/2005): “In an attempt to become the first American to summit all of the planet’s 26,250-foot peaks, Ed Viesturs of Bainbridge Island today began his climb to the top of Annapurna in Nepal.”
