A Life Well Lived

  • Meet Jim Whittaker, the first American to climb Everest and one inspiring dude

  • Tags:

    A big thank you to Seattle's Eric Becker for introducing the Internet to Jim Whittaker, who fifty years ago became the first American to climb the tallest mountain in the world. The clip features some incredible footage from the first American Mount Everest Expedition, which reached the summit on May 1, 1963. It's a beautiful portrait of a seriously awesome and inspiring guy, with plenty of great quotes and commentary from the man himself. Our fave: "Being out on the edge, with everything at risk, is where you learn and grow the most."
