Ed Viesturs reaches summit of Annapurna - Achieving lifetime goal;
Sponsor Princeton Tec joins in celebration

TRENTON, NJ. (May 12, 2005) - TRENTON, NJ.- (May 12, 2005) The employees from Princeton Tec, sponsor of world renowned climber Ed Viesturs, are celebrating today. At approximately 2 p.m. Nepal time, the word came in that Ed Viesturs had reached the summit of Annapurna, becoming the first American to summit all 14 8,000-meter peaks.

princeton tec sponsorViesturs' deferential manner and sensible approach in high risk situations has made him a long time favorite in the outdoor industry. Hailed as "one of the strongest high-altitude mountaineers", by National Geographic, the mountaineer is best known for his heroic efforts on Mount Everest in 1999, during the fateful disaster which killed Ed's friends, climbers Rob Hall and Scott Fischer, as well as seven other climbers.

Eighteen years ago, Viesturs set out on his Endeavour 8000- a person mission to climb all of the world's 8000-meter (26,250 feet) mountains, without the aid of supplemental oxygen.

"It is just so fitting that his quest should end at the summit of Annapurna", said Dave Cozzone, National Sales Manager for Princeton Tec, "the peak that started his lifelong quest." Inspired by French climber, Maurice Herzog's account of the first ascent of Annapurna at the age of 16, Viesturs has credited Herzog for launching his desire to become a mountaineer.

The New Jersey based company has sponsored Viesturs since 2001. "Since 1975 it has been Princeton Tec's goal to develop products for the outdoor sports enthusiast who pushes the limits of self discovery and to provide light for those who have explored the ends of the earth," said Cozzone. "Ed Viesturs personifies that spirit of adventure and history of meeting challenges."
When asked what the company will do to celebrate, Cozzone laughed and replied, "Well, the employees all wanted the afternoon off, but we are in the middle of our busiest season. Instead, a group of us will meet after work and raise our glasses in a toast to Ed's amazing achievement."
Princeton Tec is proud to share that Ed was wearing their Yukon HL headlamp during his ascent.
