Former NFL’er Close to Becoming the 1st player to Climb the Seven Summits Within 24 Hours

There are some feats that are so incredible, it’s hard to believe anyone could actually pull them off. Former NFL Los Angeles Raider and New Orleans Saints wide receiver Mark Pattison plans to summit Mt. Everest in May 2021. Having to delay his climb due to the pandemic, Pattison has since added to his pursuit with a challenge to also scale Lhotse, the world’s fourth-tallest peak within 24 hours of summiting Mt. Everest, which less than forty people have accomplished.

The Seven Summits are the highest peaks on each continent and Pattison will be the oldest and first NFL player to reach all seven peaks with the added challenge of conquering Lhotse.

Godspeed Mark.
