Matthew Moniz is one of the most accomplished young american alpinists, having completed all US High Points by the age of 12. Matt was nominated Ultimate Adventurers of 2010 by National Geographic.
It was a climb to Everest Base Camp at 17,200 feet and a summit of Kala Patar at 18,501 feet in April of 2007 at the age of 9 that ignited Matt’s enthusiasm for high-altitude alpine climbing. Matt set a lifetime goal to summit the seven highest peaks in each continent (known as the “Seven Summits”).
He also set a world record by becoming the youngest person to summit Cerro Aconcagua, the highest point in the Americas. Recently, Matt completed a record-setting speed ascent of all fifty United State’s High Points. Since 2009, Matt has exclusively worn Zamberlan® boots on all his expeditions.
