David Morton

David Morton splits his time between guiding in the high mountains, photography, videography and speaking. To honor the 50th anniversary of the first ascent of Mount Everest’s West Ridge, Morton and a team of climbers (Jake Norton, Charley Mace and Brent Bishop) traveled to Everest and followed the footsteps of Unsoeld and Hornbein's route, which resulted in the film High & Hallowed: Everest 1963. His association with the subject of Everest is lengthy: On six occasions he has stood on the summit of the mountain, either in the capacity of expedition leader or assigned to shoot stills and motion.

After witnessing unmet obligations in the mountain-based adventure industry, he founded The Juniper Fund, which provides assistance to individuals, families and communities in underserved countries who are adversely impacted by working for the industry.
