Having reached the top of each of the Seven Summits, including Mount Everest, all on first attempts and after the age of 50, Marshall Ulrich takes you to the top of each continent, highlighting the harsh, bitter cold environment in Antarctica and the extreme altitude and dangers of the north side of Mount Everest. Proving that health and wellness can extend into retirement, the beauty of the mountains serves as a backdrop for the audience to consider, “What is your mountain?” and “How will you choose to age?”

Marshall had hoped to make an attempt to summit Everest in 2002, but the trip was called off. His first of the “seven summits” was Denali, also known as Mount McKinley, in Alaska in June, 2002. He has since summited Aconcagua in South America (2010) and Kilimanjaro in Africa.
