We all need a little inspiration sometimes. Here’s some stuff that we’ve found that’s particularly notable.

The Full Denali Climbing Experience

Here’s what it takes to climb a mountain like Denali (Mount McKinley). This is a personal account and not one of those high budget National Geographic type documentaries – so you can be assured that this is really what it takes to do something like this.

Kudos to the brave and adventurous people who make climbs like this. It’s an accomplishment that is really something to be proud of.

Thanks for sharing your video John Beede!

A Woman’s Epic Journey to Climb 7 Mountains

A short film about a woman from Bangladesh named Wasfia Nazreen who climbed the Seven Summits “to empower the women of Bangladesh“.

Wasfia Nazreen is one of National Geographic’s Adventurers of the Year for 2015. She’s recognized as the first woman from Bangladesh to climb the Messner version of the Seven Summits.

There’s more about mountaineer, activist, social worker and writer Wasfia Nazreen on Wikipedia.

She has a wonderful and inspirational story.
