Joby Ogwyn ( ) (born August 25, 1974) is an American mountain climber, BASE jumper and Wingsuit flyer.
Ogwyn grew up in Louisiana and studied business administration at the Centenary College of Louisiana.
He summited Mount Kilimanjaro when he was just 18. When he first summited Mount Everest in 1999, he was at the time the youngest American to do so. He is a top speed climber. In 2004 Ogwyn beat the speed ascent record of an 8,000 meter peak at the Tibetan peak Cho Oyu.
Ogwyn planned to jump off Mt. Everest in a wing suit in May 2014, but after an avalanche on Everest's lower slopes during the month of April, causing the deaths of 16 Sherpa guides, the jump was cancelled.
