Preservation and mountain climbing: Dave Hahn’s balancing act

Nov 22, 2016

Professional mountain climber and guide Dave Hahn has summited Mount Everest 15 times — more than any non-Sherpa climber. He has a foothold in the Northwest as well, having climbed Mt. Rainier over 270 times.

KUOW environment reporter Ashley Ahearn wanted to learn more about Hahn’s life, how mountaineering has changed over the years, and what motivates him to keep climbing. Hahn spoke with  her at the Eddie Bauer store in University Village on October 28. Sonya Harris recorded their talk.
