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.
