By age 35, climber and photographer Jake Norton had been to Everest 6 times (with 3 summits), helped discover the remains of George Mallory in 1999, retraced the footsteps of Ernest Shackleton across South Georgia, and spent most of his life challenging himself to overcome obstacles and pursue his dreams and goals in life. Still a professional climber, guide, and photographer, Jake now shares his positive messages of setting goals, overcoming fear, trusting instinct, being a team player, and being tenacious with audiences worldwide, from Fortune 500 corporations to schools and associations. The following is a demo video of Jake's acclaimed keynote presentation, "Getting FITT: Climb Your Everest...and Enjoy the Journey". Find out more at http://www.mountainworldproductions.com!
Jake Norton discovers the 1938 high camp on the Northeast Shoulder of Mount Everest in 2004. The camp, located in possibly the windiest spot on Everest, was all but abandoned in 1938 and left in the elements for 66 years. All that Jake discovered was a tent pole, some old cans, bits of tent material, and some pitons and other items. Jake also takes viewers on a tour of the Northeast Shoulder of Everest, showing where Boardman & Tasker disappeared in 1982 and the possible ascent route taken by Mallory & Irvine in 1924. High winds that day, so Jake has added subtitles to help you understand what he is saying and describing. Enjoy, and visit http://www.mountainworldproductions.com for more!
