My personal account of climbing
Mount Everest

Below is the blog that I wrote whilst attempting to climb Mount Everest in 2012 for a second time following nearly dying during my first attempt from the North Side in 2010. Using a satellite phone I was able to keep it up to date on an almost daily basis.

I am the 276th Briton to reached the summit.

As with all blogs the posts are in ascending order so you will need to scroll to the bottom of the blog then click ‘older posts’ to start right at the beginning. I no longer update this blog as I now use a new one which you can access above.

If you have any questions or are thinking of climbing it yourself then please do get in contact. I genuinely am happy to answer any questions that you may have.

Beneath the blog are a few pictures from both sides of the mountain.
