Everest in 50: David Morton
Posted on April 29, 2013


In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the groundbreaking achievements of the Eddie Bauer-outfitted American Mount Everest Expedition, we asked every member of our Eddie Bauer First Ascent guide team who has reached the summit of the world’s highest peak to sum up the experience in 50 words or less. This summation is from David Morton, a six-time Everest summiter who attempted the daunting West Ridge route in 2012 and is currently working on a documentary with Jake Norton of the historic 1963 West Ridge first ascent.

Words by David Morton

For me Mt. Everest is what it is: the highest point to which humans can go under their own power. That simple fact has captured the imagination of generations of adventurers, who will continue to journey there and dream up new styles in which to reach its top.

    The second approach is to remind yourself how life would be if you failed to achieve that goal. Think about the pain it would cause you. Think about having to go through another moment of feeling like a complete failure. Basically, think about the consequences of not giving the goal everything you’ve got.

    Let’s say your goal was to lose weight. You then set a goal to do 1000 sit up a day. After about 1 month of doing this, you realize that you have been disciplined enough to hit your goal of 1000 sit ups a day, however, you aren’t getting any closer to your main goal of losing weight. This is called focusing on a secondary goal, which sometimes is the wrong strategy.

    So, my plan for this year, 2013, is to refocus my energy onto this site. I’ll be adding content to existing pages and creating new ones a lot more frequently as well as writing more “random thoughts”. I’ll also start to create more Youtube videos, sharing inspiring stories I find, and linking to useful stuff I find around the web.
