is a call to action that we must rise to CHALLENGE something bigger than ourselves. To BELIEVE we can REACH great heights by starting one small step at a time. Our PROWESS has no limits, we must DARE WISELY with PASSION and RESOLVE.


This book is…
for people driven to accomplish big challenges in life. It is about dealing with struggle, hardship, pain, and the determination and resilience it takes to reach higher.

Written by Theodore Fairhurst, entrepreneur, high-altitude mountaineer, public speaker, and the oldest and 9th person in history to summit both the highest mountain and volcano on all 7 continents; and by Emmanuel Daigle, professional mountain guide, high-altitude specialist, author and public speaker.

This book is a lot more than just mountains, it is about a mountain of a life lived. It is about ‘shining eyes’ and ‘daring to reach’. It is about staying open-minded, a blank canvas, to follow your passions and dreams. What is a life without struggle and glory, daring and F*ckuP’s?

Dare to Reach inspires, motivates, and pushes you to take action. Manu and Ted deliver a new perspective on how to make your craziest dreams come true.
Theodore Fairhurst is the oldest person in the world and only 9th in history to climb both the 7 SUMMITS & VOLCANIC 7 SUMMITS at 71 years 235 days.
