We wanted to learn more about Mount Everest so went to who Outside Magazine cited as “one of the world’s most respected chroniclers of Everest”, Alan Arnette. Arnette is a writer, keynote speaker, mountaineer, coach, and Alzheimer’s advocate. Amongst his accomplishments is summiting Everest in 2011, and being the oldest American to summit K2 in 2014 at the age of 58. It was a great time talking to Alan about climbing, Mount Everest, and Alzheimer’s among other topics.
