Lukas Furtenbach was born and raised in the Austrian Alps, so maybe it doesn't come as a huge surprise that he has an enduring love of mountain climbing. But what might come as a surprise is his distaste for risk. Getting hurt or dying is nobody's idea of a good time, and so for over a decade, Furtenbach has dedicated himself to making mountaineering more accessible and safe for his clients. Furtenbach Adventures has devised an ingenious method for acclimatizing adventurers for life at 20,000 feet from the comfort of their living rooms.

Listen in as Furtenbach explains his innovative training system, and also offers some useful advice is you ever find yourself stranded on a deserted island.
