Who is Steve Swenson?
Steve Swenson is one of the greatest North American climbers ever!
Meet Steve and hear Steve’s stories.
AKA, The Karakoram Kid, Steve Swenson, has a list of climbing accomplishments that might as well be written in Balti and a recently published “memoir of adventure”: Karakoram: Climbing through The Kashmir Conflict.
As one of the most influential climbing-tribe elders today with over 40 years of prolific climbing experience, take this opportunity to learn from one of climbing’s greats.
Whether you are of the climbing tribe and identify with his wife’s summary, “Fish gotta swim, Steve’s gotta climb” or you want to immerse yourself into a deeper insight of a place and people that is often written-off to Bin Laden and the war on terror, Steve’s epic tales are sure to entertain and inspire you to follow your own life of adventure.
Even better, this event is a fundraiser. Help support a great cause.
All proceeds benefit Streets to Peaks to enrich and empower at-risk, aboriginal girls and young women through mountain challenges and exposure.
