In 2009, then 66 year old Dawes Eddy of Spokane, Washington inspired us all with his summit of Mt. Everest via the South Col. Dawes’ climb was documented on the television show, Everest: Beyond the Limit, which followed the teams of Eric Simonson (IMG) and Russell Brice (Himex). In the Spring of 2013 Dawes will once again attempt Everest only this time from the North side. If successful Dawes will become the oldest American to summit Mt. Everest.
