2017

After coming so close in 2011 I had 6 months off and then re-focused on the goal.

Little did I know that goal would be 7 long years away. I was accepted to climb with Adventure Consultants’ 2017 team but a hamstring tendon injury meant it was always going to be a close call to get, not just fit but, “Everest fit” in time. Disappointingly I didn’t make it. So 2018 it is.

Under the guidance of the group of dedicated professionals I’ve  surrounded myself with I’ve  become a much stronger, faster version of myself in the last 12 months. Now with under 6 months to prepare I’ve had to make some tough decisions and the biggest sacrifice has been taking a leave of absence from CFS.

Since my return from Everest, Plan International has had additional responsibilities thrust upon it, with mother nature inflicting her fury and escalating man made humanitarian crises. I cannot commend to you enough, the work they do.

The rebuild after the Nepal 2015 Earthquake continues. The Makwanpur region that I visited prior to Everest 2010 was hit hard. I’ve been supporting Plan in their efforts to rebuild one of the schools in that region and get 850 children back into a safe school.

I will update you on my progress on my “Way Back to Everest” through entries in my blog.  Just click on the link below to view my recent posts.
