Arnette trains on Colorado 14ers and has over 150 summits, plus 35 major expeditions including the 7 Summits and Everest in 2011.

Plus a preview of Matt Moniz’s exciting Himalayan expedition. This May 2014, 16 year-old National Geographic Adventurer of the Year, Matt Moniz and team, will attempt an unprecedented expedition to summit three of the six tallest mountains in the world, Everest, Lhotse and Cho Oyu. Matt will be finishing with a ski descent of the Lhotse Couloir. NEITHER HAS BEEN DONE BEFORE.
