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 concise report is from Dave Hahn, who has tallied 14 summits of Everest, the record for any non-Sherpa.
Words by Dave Hahn
I’ve seen Everest as impossible and deadly, at other times as impossibly beautiful and the perfect test of my hoped-for strength, smarts and skills. For me, after 22 years, it is a mountain of history, of friendship, of possibility and mystery…and of cold, hard, mean reality.
