In this episode we get to sit down with world class climber Brent Bishop who shares these experiences and more.
Brent Bishop, the son of the late legendary climber Barry Bishop, began climbing as a child with his father on the east coast and in the Rocky Mountains. When he was young, his parents moved to and worked in Nepal. Living among the Sherpa people, Brent developed close ties and personal friendships with many of them that continue today.
In 1994 he became the first American legacy to follow in his father’s footsteps and summit Mt. Everest. He reached the summit again in 2002 with the National Geographic Mt. Everest Expedition that marked the 50th anniversary of the first ascent of Everest.
An accomplished climber and explorer in his own right, Brent has climbed and guided expeditions throughout the United States, Canada, South America, Europe, Asia and the Antarctic. Brent has accomplished difficult first ascents and pioneered new routes up established peaks.
His climbing and environmental work earned him awards from the prestigious Explorer’s Club and the American Alpine Club.
