Dr. Eric Meyer is an anesthesiologist and a high altitude mountaineer based out of Steamboat Springs, CO. During the 2008 K2 tragedy where 11 climbers died near the summit, Meyer chose not to proceed into that dangerous territory. With Sherpa Chhiring Dorje, Meyer has also explored who summited Everest first. Officially, Sir Edmund Hillary and Sherpa Tenzing Norgay were the first, but there is evidence to suggest that Mallory may have done it almost 30 years earlier.
