  EverestHistory.com: Brent Okita


Brent Okita summited Mt. Everest on May 21, 1991 along the North East Ridge (George Mallory's 1924 route) as part of an American team led by Eric Simonson. He is a veteran climber who, among other ascents, has climbed Mount Rainier over 195 times.

Raised in Italy and Switzerland, Brent joined Rainier Mountaineering Inc. in 1986 and splits his time between skiing and guiding on Mt. Rainier. He is now a Veteran Senior guide and Advisory Board member for RMI. Brent leads annual expeditions to Mt. McKinley in Alaska and the European Alps. 

Brent returned to Everest in 2001 as part of the Mallory and Irvine Research Expedition, which searched for clues to what happened to the two climbers in their final push toward the summit. On April 29th Brent and fellow climber Jake Norton located Mallory & Irvine's Camp 6 at about 8140-meters on Everest's North Face.

In addition to his adventures on Everest Brent's climbing resume includes 10 expeditions to Mount McKinley, 2 expeditions to the Wrangell-St. Elias Range, Alaska, as well as an expedition to Mt. Vinson, Antarctica, and 2 expeditions to Mexican Volcanoes. He has made various ascents in the French, Swiss and Italian Alps and many in the Washington Cascades.
