He was a Wall Street worker and a financier who set up to break a record that only a few people did. Bo Parfet was not a professional mountain climber, but he began it as a passion that grew, and he later was recorded among the mountain climbers in the world. Bo has climbed all the tall mountains in almost all continents in the world. Some of the mountains that the financier born in Kalamazoo climbed include Vinson Massif, Kilimanjaro, Everest, Elbrus, Aconcagua, and Denali, among many others. The love for adventure grew, and he began writing a book about his travel across the world and his passion and achievement for mountain climbing.
Bo Parfet is not only an adventurist but also a mountain climber. In his thriftbook’s highly rated “Die Trying” he had combined a sense of humor and the adventure he went through when he was traversing the world. Bo wrote the book with the thought of a man wanting to find his limitations. Die Trying gives the reader an accurate picture of what Bo Parfet was going through during his adventure. Bo describes how together with his team, he climbed the mountains using a ladder, how they escaped avalanches to cross the aperture, to how he once pulled one of his dead teammates from an icefall. At the age of 26, Bo Parfet served as a financier at JP Morgan when he organized his first mountain climb in the tallest mountain in Africa, Mount Kilimanjaro. Bo was determined to achieve the Seven Summit with a passion for climbing mountains, which he did.
