Author’s Description: I wrote this simple practical guide or “tip book” following my successful Summit on 23 May 2018 and realized that there was much I learnt on the mountain, prior expeditions and similar challenges, that could help others achieve their Goal, and more importantly that I had not been told, read in books, watched in documentaries or exaggerated in the movies! This practical guide is primarily written for the “Amateur” or beginner Mountaineer, and covers Physical, Technical and Mental Training aspects as well as the route and more practical matters. However but much of its content equally applies to those whom are more experienced.
This Guide is written to provide practical guidance and tips to hopefully make your experience better and help you achieve Mt Everest Summit . It is intended to be complementary to your Expedition Company and Leaders advice, both pre-arrival and on the mountain.
Finally I also believe many of the items covered in this practical guide can equally be applied to other similar rigorous challenges. I wish you success and safe return from “Your Everest”, whatever it might be.
