Lonnie Dupre is an arctic explorer, a mountain climber, and the founder of One World Endeavors. He has a robust list of accomplishments, many of them firsts: the first Pacific to Atlantic traverse of the Northwest Passage by dogsled, the first human-powered circumnavigation of Greenland, and the first human-powered summer expedition to the North Pole. Most recently, he became the first person to ever summit Denali solo in January.
In this episode, there are a few times where we credit Lonnie with the "first winter solo ascent". CORRECTION: This was the "first January solo ascent" with the first successful winter solo ascent belonging to Vern Tejas in March, 1988.
