Sir Ranulph Fiennes is known as “The Worlds Greatest Living Explorer” and his resume is certainly full of impressive adventures. The man was the first to visit both the North and South Pole by land, and the first to cross the Antarctic as well. He’s also run seven marathons, in seven days, on seven continents, and more recently climbed the Eiger at the age of 63.
National Geographic Adventure recently sat down with the living legend himself for an interesting interview on his illustrious career, the expedition he’s most proud of, which one he’d do over again, and why he chose the Eiger for his climb, even though he’s afraid of heights.
The first page of the interview is a bit of a rundown on Sir Ran himself, and info on his many adventures. They actually get to the questions on page 1 and page 2 of the article, where you’ll actually find the meat of the story.
By the way, Sir Ranulph does mention that an update to his autobiography Mad, Bad, and Dangerous To Know is due out this week in paperback. It should make for a great read.
