Video Interview with 12-Year Old Climber Matt Moniz

A local Denver television station conducted an interview with 12-year old climber Matt Moniz, who recently completed his 50 in 50 in 50 climb, in which he and his dad reached the top of the highest points in each of the 50 states in less than 50 days. (It actually only took him 43 days!) In the video, Matt talks about his motivations for climbing and what it was like for he and his dad, as well as their support crew, to travel around the U.S. to climb everything from small mole hills to 20,000+ foot peaks. 

This is a very good interview and the kid comes across as comfortable and genuine on camera. Pretty rare for someone his age, but then again, so is his climbing abilities.
