Who We Are

Brad and Tonya Clement are high altitude mountaineers and devoted alpinists. They are the only married couple from the United States actively pursuing the world's 8000 meter peaks - the 14 highest mountains in the world. Both are members of the Marmot Pro Athlete Team.

Mountains have had powerful influences on their lives, both personally and professionally, and they are firm believers that the dramatic, tangible lessons learned in the mountains can extend beyond the literal rock and ice of the peaks to be applied to all aspects of life - and help people from all walks of life and from all professional directions achieve their goals.
