His teammates have ranged in age from 9 to 85 years old and have had a phenomenal success rate of over 95%.

In January 2012, Kevin was given one of his greatest and most rewarding climbs to date. He was the expedition leader for Kyle Maynard, the first quadruple amputee to summit Mt. Kilimanjaro. Kyle won an ESPN, ESPY Award for this tremendous accomplishment. In 2016 Kyle climbed the highest peak in the western hemisphere, Mt. Aconcagua in Argentina under Kevin’s leadership, and was subsequently featured in a Nike commercial during the 2016 Summer Olympics.

Everest in 2001. Erik is the only blind person in history to reach the summit. On June 5, 2007, Kevin fulfilled one of his life-long dreams and summited Mt. Everest himself.

In 2009, Kevin co-founded K2 Adventures Foundation, a qualified national and international 501(c) (3) non-profit organization.
