Personal Quote:

"I remember collapsing to my knees and just crying and crying inside my mask as all those emotions from so long began to flow. Neil and myself, with our oxygen off, just hugged. It is an extraordinary place and you see the curvature of the earth at the edges and at 7.22am we watched as the dawn came up over all the land of Tibet 20,000 ft below." - On Climbing Everest.
