Never Stop Climbing conducted an interview with Alan Arnette and posted the story online for all to read. In the interview, the always thoughtful and interesting Alan discusses many aspects of mountaineering, and the impact it has had on his life.
Alan started climbing a little later in life, and the ripe-young age of 38. But that hasn’t hindered him any, and he has tackled some of the biggest mountains on Earth, including Ama Dablam, Shisha Pangma, Denali, Everest, and more. He talks about his cautious (I would call it smart!) approach to climbing, and his motivations for returning to Everest this past spring to climb for the Cure Alzheimer’s Fund.
Alan’s website is a wonderful resource for mountaineers, including the armchair variety. I often link to it here because he has a wealth of experience in the mountains, great insights, and a wonderful writing style that I enjoy. If you haven’t checked it out already, then what are you waiting for? I promise you’ll want to bookmark it!
Can two horrendously out of shape guys get fit, learn how to climb, and tackle some of the world’s highest mountains?
We are about to find out.
Never Stop Climbing is about transformation, exploration, and reaching seemingly impossible goals no matter what they are. For us it is about reaching mountain summits and achieving the fitness required to get there, and back, safely. For others it may be a battle with weight or cancer. You may have other adventures in mind.
Sounds like fun to me. I’ll be checking back! Good luck guys!
