Inspired by great climbers before him, Kyle has always had his eyes on the great mountains of the world. Growing up in the Cascade mountains of Washington state, Kyle’s father introduced him to the outdoors and the mountains from an early age. As life went on, Kyle always had aspirations to do more for others. With a humble and encouraging outlook on life, Kyle pursued firefighting, obtaining a degree in Fire Science. In the summer of 2010, Kyle and his father put together his two passions, giving and the outdoors, and began the Everest Endeavor. Since 2010, Kyle and the Endeavor team have made great progress on their plan to climb Mt. Everest. Partnering with great causes like Falling Whistles and The CancerClimber Association, Kyle has been on Mt. Rainier, Mt. Adams, and most recently, Mt. Kilimanjaro in 2012. In 2013 and 2014, Kyle will be climbing Mt. Baker as well as Mt. Rainier and Mt. Adams once again. Kyle believes that we were put here on Earth for more. Whatever you personal beliefs are, life is rare. It’s fragile and it’s over far too quickly. We want to enjoy it as much as we can. From cancer awareness to clean water, Kyle strives to help spread the word of need and shine light on those that need to be seen. Using big mountain climbing, Kyle can connect the dots between climbing some of the biggest mountains in the world and those who are climbing mountain-sized challenges in their own lives. He is dedicated to showing others that no matter how big or how impossible something might seem, you can conquer it. Check out more on Kyle's site www.everestendeavor.com.
