My account of climbing Everest by the North Ridge is available as an ebook on Amazon and other online bookstores.
"A compelling read with no smoke and mirrors, just a whole lot of truth, hard work, and humility. Great book!"
Exploring peaks in Peru's green and pleasant Ishinca Valley, with ascents of Urus Este and Ishinca.
My attempt to climb 8516m peak in Nepal is abandoned after horrific avalanche and labour dispute at Everest Base Camp.
