In partnership with PASS and the OPR Speaker Series: Jon Kedrowski presents “Climb Your Own Everest". Dr. Jon Kedrowski, acclaimed author, world-class mountaineer and Everest summiteer, will share tales of his journeys and experiences. Last May, Kedrowski made it to the top of Mt. Everest one week after having to turn back only 800 feet from the summit due to a terrible storm. This storm was the second deadliest in Mt. Everest history, claiming seven lives in one night. Kedrowski will also be on hand to sign his new book, "Sleeping on the Summits: Colorado 14er High Bivys."
