Most have heard about climbing the 7 summits – the goal of reaching the top of all 7 continents – but few people have heard about a unique and small group of climbers known as Highpointers. These climbers are interested in climbing the highest points all over the world.
Branndon’s goal is to be the first to climb the highest point in every country in the world and he has a good start. He will discuss many of his favorite Highpoint trips which he often combines with other projects. He will also discuss how he turned his passion for climbing into producing and hosting a new TV show on PBS called, “The Highpointers.“
