Overview

Carl is a businessman who started climbing mountains relatively late in life. His love for the mountains and great outdoors started as a boy growing up in Wyoming. Weekends were often spent in the Wyoming hills and mountains hunting Indian artifacts or catching trout.

Climbing always interested him, but for most of his life he never considered becoming a mountain climber. But as he commuted to his job in Boulder, Colorado, one beautiful and huge mountain greeted him each day – Longs Peak. The dormant desire to climb mountains came alive. A goal was set to climb Longs Peak.

This was an especially challenging goal as Carl was still recovering from kidney cancer. Together with his rehabilitation specialist, plans were made to climb Longs Peak. With a significant amount of physical conditioning, Carl stood on the summit of this great Colorado 14er. A passion to climb mountains was born.

In the summer of 2009, Carl put work on the backburner to focus on mountain climbing. Ten mountains were selected. He had two primary goals for the Summer of Climbing -- first, to summit each mountain. Second to look for the defining moment of each climb and then to develop life lessons around the defining moments. The Result is Reaching New Heights, A Summer of Climbing.

Join Carl as he climbs. Experience the thrill, pain and sense of accomplishment as he works his way to the summit. Then spend time in reflecting on the defining moments and the lessons he learned. His life was changed writing this book. As you journey with him through his Summer of Climbing, his prayer is that you will be blessed, enriched and challenged.
