Outside Online correspondent Paul Roberts is freelance writer specializing in outdoor sports and environmental politics. A novice climber, he has summited Kilimanjaro and several volcanoes in the Pacific Northwest, but leaves the hard stuff to the gnarly boys and girls. Paul has written for The New Republic, Psychology Today, and other magazines, and lives in Seattle with his wife and 2-year-old daughter. He interviewed Jon Krakauer in Seattle as the author was leaving for a one-month, 13-city tour to promote Into the Wild.
