Josh Wharton ’97- Courage

In 2009, Patagonia ambassador and mountain climber Josh Wharton sustained a 25-foot fall, breaking his arms and back. His arduous recovery, resiliency, and courageous return to the sport he is passionate about exemplify Gould’s core values. Most recently, Josh and his climbing partner Vince Anderson completed their multi-year project on Jirishanca, a rarely summited 20,100-foot peak in Peru’s Cordillera Huayhuash—photo by Drew Smith.
