World leading high altitude mountaineer, author, and highly acclaimed motivational speaker.

Called the “ultimate climbing machine” by Men’s Journal, Ed Viesturs is the United States’ leading Himalayan mountaineer.

He is the only American and one of only five people to climb the 14 highest peaks in the world without supplemental oxygen.

Having successfully ascended Mount Everest six times, Viesturs in May 2005 completed an even more ambitious, 16-year quest to climb the 14 highest mountains in the world without supplemental oxygen.

He named this goal Endeavor 8000, since each of these Himalayan peaks exceeds 8,000 meters (26,240 feet). Why did he do it? “I tend to be very goal-oriented and savor difficulty.” Viesturs said. “Climbing the 14 highest Himalayan giants seemed to be the ultimate multi-year challenge with no guaranteed outcome.”

Viesturs reached on May 19th 2009 the summit of Mt. Everest for his seventh time.
