    Mountaineer, author, and filmmaker Rick Ridgeway

    Mountaineer, author, and filmmaker Rick Ridgeway

    Rick Ridgeway could be one of the most incredible people I have spoken with.


    He's the man The Rolling Stones called "the real Indiana Jones. He's the 2008 recipient of National Geographic’s “Lifetime Achievement in Adventure”. He's a lifelong adventurer, filmmaker of over 30 documentaries, has climbed virtually all of the world's highest peaks on all continents—including Everest. He had the third summit of K2, a climb more dangerous than Everest. He's the former VP of Public Engagement at Patagonia and author of six mountaineering classics, including most recently, his recent incredibly emotional, evocative, and incredibly inspiring memoir Life Lived Wild.
