PROVO, Utah – A man in Provo just finished climbing all of the highest mountains in all 50 states.
The amazing feat took him to the top of Mount Mckinley in Alaska and a mere 345 feet above sea level in Florida.
Andy Howell said some of the climbs proved to be a greater challenge than others.
“The most difficult one without a doubt is Denali, it’s a 2 to 4 week adventure,” Howell said. “It’s super cold. It’s very committing. It’s very high, but all the ones out here in the west are high peaks in their own right.”
Howell started mountaineering three years ago. After he realized he made it to the top of two of the most difficult state high points, he thought he better check the rest of them off his list.
