“I have enjoyed adventures from Alaska to Argentina, from Bolivia to Tibet. I like rock, ice, alpine and high-altitude climbing. Along with co-leading international expeditions, I’ve also taught hundreds of kids to climb indoors.” - Jim
In 2015, Jim was at Camp 1 on Mt. Everest when a massive 7.8 magnitude quake rocked Nepal. After escaping the upper mountain, he helped dig out buried medical gear and recover some of those killed by the base camp avalanche. Later on, he helped lead the charge in raising funds for rebuilding Nepalese communities. And in 2017, he returned to Everest and was able to reach the summit during a spectacular sunrise.
