Shailee Basnet went from someone who never hiked to summiting Mount Everest in less than two months. Since conquering the tallest mountain on earth, Basnet spearheaded the Seven Summits Women Team, which became the first female team in the world to climb the highest peak in each continent.

We also chat about the differences between the Appalachian Trail and Pacific Crest Trail, thru-hiking purism, and a new series by hiking legend Jennifer Pharr Davis!
