American Climbing Legend to Retire at Peak

Author: No Comments Share:

Ed Viesturs is retiring after becoming the first American (12th climber overall) to summit all 14 of the world’s highest peaks without using bottled oxygen.

Viesturs isn’t done climbing mountains â?? just mountains above 8,000 meters. He doesn’t have anything scheduled, but he’s looking at some mountains in India and Tibet. And he may even be back on Everest, a mountain he has climbed six times, although he won’t be shooting for the summit this time.
