Mountain climbers called Warren.

Mountain in Switzerland

I did this in another blogg as I found out that many mountain climbers were called Warren, it was either the first or second name.

It is interesting, how many there are, with Warren either for the first or the last name, who are either climbing or otherwise connected with climbing. There is the amazing Warren MacDonald climbing Mount Kilimanjaro with no legs, but there are many more/

Adventurer Warren Jansen of Jekyll Island returns from his ascent of Mount Kilimanjaro August 29 - September 6.
Outside of his practice, Mr. Warren was a soccer coach for several years and remains an avid cyclist and runner, having competed successfully in several duathalons and marathons, including three Calgary Marathons, the 1998 World Endurance Duathalon and six Boston Marathons, the latest one in 2003. In 2004, he and his family huffed and puffed their way to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. Kenneth J. Warren

CPA runners find faith, hope in Africa
Tennessean Staff Writer
Standing atop Mt. Kilimanjaro, it is easy to forget what lies below.
Fifteen thousand feet above the arid plains of Tanzania, what little breath the lungs hold can get swept away by splendor and accomplishment.
Paul and Eddy Warren have been there.
The Christ Presbyterian athletes have traveled through the equatorial jungle and along glacier-eroded mountainsides. With the stamina and determination of life-long runners, they scaled Africa's highest peak. They understand what it means to be on top of the world.
But they have also been below the clouds where breathtaking beauty is replaced by a war-torn and poverty-stricken landscape.
For the Warrens, Africa is not just a place to vacation
Some people come out on top, no matter what they do. Like our Chief Magistrate JudgeWarren P. Davis, who, among other honors, has received the William McMahon Award from the American Bar Association and the "Man of the Year" award from La Vision, a bilingual newspaper. 
And even when it comes to giving excuses, he tops anything I've ever heard. Last February, when I was recruiting readers for Dr. Seuss' birthday, I called Judge Davis, expecting him to read as usual. (I volunteer to do this so when I write my poem, I know I'll have names that rhyme with something.) 
Anyway, Judge Davis declined because he?d be climbing Mount Kilimanjaro that day. And it wasn't something he'd come up with at the last minute. He'd worked long and hard on this one. 
"Selecting a training regime was difficult," Judge Davis said. "The first Web sites I reviewed contended that Kilimanjaro climbers must be able be to run at least six miles in 48 minutes. With that information, I did the only thing that a prudent AARP member could do. I looked for other Web sites with less rigorous requirements." 
He and his wife, Elizabeth Belden, began training in October for their March climb up the world's highest free-standing mountain, which at 19,340 feet, would be like a dozen Stone Mountains piled on top of each other. 
Warren Ferguson and friends will fly to Africa to climb Mr. Kilimanjaro, the tallest free-standing mountain in the world.
Hey, you're only as old as you think and feel. I hike and climb sometimes with folks in their 70s and 80s. One fellow, Warren, organizes hikes up Kilimanjaro, in Nepal, lots of other places, and as tour leader, is right up there at the front of the group, and that's at 83 or 84.

Toby Warren - Africa & Australia Expert 
Toby was brought up in Kenya and at a young age gained a passion for travelling. After climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro when he was sixteen he went on to help manage a fishing lodge on the shores of Lake Victoria, hitch hike barefoot through sub-Saharan Africa and spent a year working and guiding in Kenya as part of his university degree.
That's been a passion for the Desais since the mid-1980s, when they decided to walk every day for a year, in order to ascend 19,340-foot Mount Kilimanjaro on the Kenya-Tanzania border. Apparently, this fitness regimen had been avidly pursued by all present -- including Warren Stockman of Palo Alto, who at 74 was the oldest strider present. The group nailed the 2,800 foot summit of Black Mountain in just two hours and 25 minutes. Then they dropped down the back side, so they could hike back up and add another 500 feet of vertical to the day's total.

Editors note: Yosemite climbing legend Warren Harding passed away Feb 27, 2002. He will be sorely missed
