Taras, the son of Ray Genet and Kathy Sullivan, climbed Mount McKinley in June, 1991, at the age of 12. At that time, he was the youngest mountaineer to attempt this climb and the youngest to make the summit. He follows in the footsteps of his famous mountaineer-guide father and his mother, who was one of Ray Genet's assistant guides. Ray died before he could lead his son to the summit of Mount McKinley. Climbing expedition leader, Chip Faurot served as mentor to the young climber.
