Meet Accomplished Climber and A&K Explorer in Residence Alex Pancoe
Guests on this exciting expedition are joined by accomplished climber Alex Pancoe, who recently summited Mount McKinley in Denali National Park in July 2019 and achieved what very few have: the Explorers Grand Slam. It was his recovery from a brain tumor diagnosis at 18 that inspired him to climb the seven tallest peaks, with the goal of raising a million dollars for the hospital where he had received care, Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago. Next up for Alex, who lives in Chicago: climbing “the savage mountain” of K2 in Pakistan.
