If you’re looking for an interesting read today, look no further than Outside magazine. The iconic publication has posted another article that celebrates its 40th Anniversary, this time taking a look at 8 adventurers who have changed our world.

As you can imagine, the list is filled with distinguished and very worthy outdoor athletes, some of which have become household names. There are also several whose exploits we cover regularly here at The Adventure Blog as well, including the likes of Jimmy Chin, Alex Honnold, and Jeb Corliss. Beyond that, I won’t say too much about who else earned a spot on Outside’s list, but it is safe to say that there are some true legends here.

Narrowing down the list of iconic adventurers to just 8 couldn’t have been easy. Personally, I can think of at least a half-dozen other men and women I would have put on here in addition to the ones that are named. But, it is safe to say that these athletes have certainly had an impact on the world of outdoor adventure, breaking new ground in their various fields of endeavor while also pushing boundaries in ways that we may not have ever considered before.
