  Brien Sheedy finishes the seven summits


Brien Sheedy

Brien Sheedy finishes the 7 Summits, it took him 11.5 years to do so because it was not a goal at first.  The first three peaks were done while working NOLS courses in the region and then when he decided to climb Everest; it finally occurred to him that if he succeeded on Everest, then he should finish the others.

"Well I succeeded and it has been an amazing experience visiting all these areas. I am currently the Director of Outdoor Programs at Whitman College in Walla Walla, WA and am also a senior instructor for the National Outdoor Leadership School. Whitman College is a small highly selective liberal arts College in southeastern Washington (only 1400 students). However, several alums and staff members have summited Everest. Phil Ershler, John Wechter, Jason Tanguay and myself have all done so.", Brien told EverestNews.com
