ADVENTURE AND CHALLENGES

 

My endurance challenges and adventures have taken me across the UK and the mountains of the Alps and Himalayas. I am not a mountaineer or a climber – I simply find my adventures in the mountains.

Closer to home I’m a keen road cyclist and a competitive runner of roads, trails and mountains (…when not injured!).

Adventures with Alex Staniforth

Everest 2015

My second attempt on the world’s highest peak, again from the Nepal side with Tim Mosedale and a team of four. We were making our first trip to Camp One (6,050m) when the Nepal earthquake hit on April 25th. A powder avalanche hit me just below Camp One and trapped us at the camp for two days whilst base camp below was devastated by an even bigger avalanche triggered by the earthquake.

Cho Oyu 2016

The sixth highest peak in the world (8,201m) climbed from Tibet with 360 Expeditions. We arrived in Lhasa in September 2016 for the 45-day expedition. I reached an all-time high of 7,125m altitude at Camp 2.

Everest 2014

The first attempt to realise my dream, on a team led by Tim Mosedale. I left the UK on 29th March for the two-month expedition in Nepal. Our team trekked to base camp (5,360m) over three weeks from Lukla and arrived a day after a huge avalanche fell into the Khumbu Icefall and tragically killed sixteen climbing Sherpas and porters. Due to political circumstances and protest, the expedition was forced to abandon a week later.

24 hour time trial

Solo 24 Time Trial

Cycling on my own for twenty-four hours because I felt like it. Left home in Kelsall and headed south through the night, battling boredom and the will to fall asleep. 268 miles later I ended up in the fierce wilderness of Dartmoor National Park!
