Climbing the Seven Summits Success Story!
11/30/2009 7:00 PM
Please join us as extreme-endurance athlete, Troy Aupperle, shares his video and pictures from his recent summit of Mt. Everest on May 22nd and the completion of his quest for the "Seven Summits". His goal to set an American record was thwarted by logistic issues as well as international politics, but he persevered and still managed to complete it in the third fastest American time. Troy began his climbing career at REI, Inc. while managing the Climbing department at the Tempe store. He went through the beginning climbing course at AMC and met his eventual climbing mentor. Looking ahead to the next two years Troy will join the "Colorado Club" as he finishes the last of the 54 peaks over 14,000' as well as the High Pointers Club - climbing the highest point in each of the fifty states.
