Lou Whittaker, world renowned mountain guide and author, took up wood carving at the age of 79. when his knees became too painful to climb. He had guided thousands of people up Mount Ranier, led expeditions to Mt. Everest, Kangachenjunga, and climbed high on K2, of course he carved a mountain climber
His longtime friend and renowned metal artist Russ Lamb saw the unique wood carving and immediately decided it had to cast in bronze.
Lou by then had new knees and was back to hiking and skiing and therefore had put away his carving knives.
