Hello and welcome to my blog.

I am spending 2013 and the first part of 2014 skiing to both the poles and climbing to the tops of the highest mountain on each of the seven continents which when combined becomes the Explorers Grand Slam - see the links for Wiki information on these.

I will be the 5th Brit and 38th person in the world to have ever completed this!


The rough program of my expeditions and training is as follows:
January   -  Kitting up and training in Scotland
February   -  Aconcagua
March  -  Argentina
April   -  North Pole
May   -  Training
June  -  Denali
July  -  Elbrus
August  -  Carstenz Pyramid
Oct /Nov - Ama Dablam
December  -  Antarctica
January  -  Antarctica
Feb / Mar - Australia
April  -  Everest
May  -  Everest


Apparently it is pretty tricky to post comments on this blog. You need to get a Google identity apparently - this can be done by choosing the Google line from the profile box and then following the onscreen instructions.

Thanks and I hope you enjoy what has been a superb 18 months for me.

  1. I have undergone Basic Mountaineering Course from NIM India and now want to start my Seven Summits climbs with Mt Kosciuszko solo climb in first week of June 2016.
    Can you please tell me about your total cost, time taken in whole trip and which route you have taken as a seven summit aspirant climber.
    I can definately arrange the money needed but i need some information from you as you are experienced and qualified mountaineer.
    I have booked plane tickets as well as travel to the Kosciuszko National Park .My visa procedures are also completed .
    As this is my first climb outside India ,so please bless me by helping me.
    Looking forward for a quick response.
    Yours sincerely
