Over the years, I’ve had the opportunity…

Over the years, I’ve had the opportunity to climb and work with some amazing people, around the world. One of those special souls is @brb13770. Brent’s climbing career speaks for itself, with multiple Everest summits of ascents of classic routes around the world. But, what makes him unique is Brent is far more than a climber. Throughout his career, Brent has focused on making a difference by co-founding the Sagarmatha Environmental Expedition in 1994 and dedicating his time and energy to important causes around the world, earning him the Lowell Thomas Award from @the_explorers_club and the David R. Brower Award from @americanalpine. Brent also makes the hard-but-right choices on his climbs, like just this May giving up another summit of Everest to instead try to save the life of a fallen climber. Along with all that, Brent is a joy to climb with as he’s not mono-dimensional; conversations on the trail, at the belay, and in camp range from business to environmental ethics to politics, philosophy, and much more. So, a big Happy Birthday, Bishop! Hope it’s a great one, and thanks for all your contributions to our world. | In this photo, Brent climbs alongside @charley.mace at sunrise on Mt.
