Take a look back at Chad’s 2012 Everest Attempt.

Originally Posted June 7, 2012 - For the past two years, Chad Kellogg has been preparing to best the established best known time for a speed ascent of Mount Everest, training his body and mind to climb and descend the highest mountain in the world without the use of supplemental oxygen faster than ever before. On May 25, 2012, Chad made the summit push. Unfortunately, due to exhaustion and unforeseen complications lower on the mountain, he was forced to turn back about 200 meters below the summit. 

At Outdoor Research, we stand in awe of Chad’s effort.
