The Summit Project

Mountaineering and rock climbing stories and advice from seasoned athletes and climbers.


The Summit Project is a collaboration between Mark Pattison, a former NFL player now striving to climb the tallest mountain on each of the seven continents, and Matt Walker, one of the nation's prominent mountain and rock climbers who uses the lessons of the outdoors to coach business leaders and their management teams.

They have brought together a coalition of outdoor enthusiasts who will share, comment and engage those who love the outdoors and want to learn more about climbing, hiking, gear and mountain life generally. The channel will go live on Maven soon.

Pattison is the founder of NFL2SevenSummits, on which he documents his journey from the NFL to his climbing accomplishments as well as his successful business and philanthropic endeavors. Walker is a renowned climber and psychologist who founded Matt Walker Adventure, which facilitates outdoor adventures and coaches individuals to achieve their personal and professional goals. His published worked has appeared in the Seattle Times, National Geographic Adventure and Climbing magazine, among others.
