Bio

Joby Ogwyn is an American adventurer and mountaineer best known for undertaking various extreme challenges in the television series Adventure Wanted.

Ogwyn grew up in Louisiana and his worldly adventures began at age 15 when he drove with friends to Guatemala to explore ancient Mayan ruins and photograph the volcanoes of Central America.

It was at this time that he was bit by the "adventuring bug" and tailored his life to exploration and adventure.

When he summited Everest in 1999, he was the youngest American to ever scale its legendary routes; he's also the youngest mountaineer in history to ascend the Seven Summits (the highest peak on each continent).

And, in 2005, Ogwyn made history by smashing the speed ascent record of an 8,000 metre peak: the Tibetan peak, Cho Oyo, demolishing the previous record by nearly 2.5 hours.
