“Some times you got to go get after it.” MP bagged Everest

Your illness does not define you.

“You can drive yourself crazy as the expedition leader by pouring over countless weather reports,” wrote Ryan Waters last week about his frustration whether to go or hold for Everest summit with his clients.

His decision: “Some times you got to go get after it.”

That they did and today Mountain Professionals are among the many commercial outfits reporting success on Mount Everest.

Among the brand new summiteers: Chris Bombardier.

Battling his own, unique challenge in an environment celebrating athletic power, Chris just opened a whole new world of possibilities for people with the blood disease hemophilia.
