Kevin recently appeared on WROC-TV, Rochester's local CBS affiliate and RNEWS, Rochester's cable news, to discuss his latest mountain climbing adventure. After reaching the top of Everest in May, 2004, Kevin continued his journey to reach the top of the highest peaks on each continent. He recently achieved this goal by scaling to the top of the Carstensz Pyramid in Indonesia. Now, Kevin is a member of an elite group of only about 90 people (30 Americans) in the world to ever achieve this feat.
