Mount Everest

Nepal, Asia (8,848 m)

Pending April/May 2021

!Mount Everest is the highest mountain on Earth, standing at 8848m or 29,029ft. The international border between China (Tibet autonomous region) and Nepal runs across her summit point. Tenzing Norgay and Sir Edmund Hillary made the first official ascent of Mount Everest in 1953, using the southeast ridge route. While not posing substantial technical challenges on the standard route, Everest presents dangers of altitude sickness, weather, winds, acute mountain sickness, as well as the significant hazards from avalanches and the Khumbu icefall. Speaking about Mount Everest Damian said, "This is not something I ever dreamed I would attempt, simply because I didn't think I could. However my thinking has changed in recent years due in large part to my experiences and growth from pushing my standards of preparation and my physical and mental limits in recent expeditions. I want to test myself in the world's most extreme environments and I believe this will be my "ultimate examination"

Damian's April/May 2020 Mount Everest expedition has been postponed one year due to Covid-19
