RIP To Johnny Strange, A Total Badass And Adventurer Who Died At 23 While Wingsuiting In Switzerland
Johnny Strange might not be a household name, but his accomplishments are not unknown to us here at BroBible. Strange was a total badass — At the age of 17, he accomplished the incredible feat of climbing the Seven Summits — Aconcagua, Everest, Elbrus, Kilimanjaro, Denali, Puncak Jaya, Vinson, the highest peaks on each continent. A SoCal kid from Malibu, he climbed the first one — Mt. Vinson Massif in Antarctica — at the age of 12. His teenage adventures became iconic in the action sports world. He was truly an adrenaline junkie in every sense of the term.
Today news surfaced that Strange passed away during a wingsuit accident in Switzerland. Check out his interview above to get a sense of just how big of a Bro King this guy was. Our thoughts go out to his family.
