Big Al In The Himalayas – 2004

Me and my brother -in-law used to go mountain climbing together. When I saw mountain climbing, I mean ‘British’ mountains, mere hillocks in comparison to the Alps or the Rockies or the Himalayas. Once Al got into ropes, climbing sheer cliff faces and dicing with death, I shit out. In 2004, he went to the Himalayas and climbed Everest on a spacehopper….OK, he got to the base camp which is itself a trek involving plane flights from Katmandu, hiring a Sherpa¬†guide and breathing through a false lung. Here are some boss photos I’ve been mithering for from this adventure in the high lands of Nepal.
