Description

Are we raising a generation of wimps? Why are so many parents trying to bulldoze the smoothest path for their children to walk down? That’s not the Sweeney way! In this first episode (Part 2) Patrick and his oldest son P.J. show the value of an adventure education, and how getting out taking risks and learning new skills can lay the foundation for greatness. Patrick and P.J. return from a failed attempt on Mount Blanc in France to attack Colorado’s 14,000 foot peaks. They summit six of the biggest peaks in the continental United States and P.J. decides that the summit he really wants is Mount Rainier in Washington. Mount Rainier is known as the mountaineer’s training ground for Everest and Mount McKinley. It is the most difficult summer climb in the contiguous United States with crevasse crossings, ice falls, and dangerous traverses. Can a nine (9) year old make it through this tough environment? Does age or gender really have an impact on abilities? Watch this first episode to find out. Be sure to subscribe to the channel and see a new episode every week!
