Thank you for visiting my website.  This site has been set up to keep you in touch with the latest developments in my attempt to take on the Seven Summits.

I have now successfully scaled the highest point on six of the world’s seven continental plates and am now gearing up for an attempt on Mount Everest in Spring 2013.  Tests were performed in Ecuador during December 2012 / January 2013 of this website to ensure that adequate remote blogging capabilities are available to help you keep abreast of developments during my Everest attempt.  As a result of these tests, some further improvements are being assessed and hopefully implemented to make following my blog whilst out on Everest as interesting as possible.

Many people like to follow blog updates using social media so I have set up a facebook page which you can follow and this facebook page will have feeds from this website transferred over to it.

During the Everest expedition, I am looking to progress radiation protection science and will be making measurements of cosmic radiation doses received on Everest.

Finally, I am trying to raise money for three choosen charities during my attempt to ascend Everest. Please consider donating generously to one, or more, of these charities. Thank you.

    Hi Bob, really enjoyed reading through some of your trip reports. It seems we have some things in common – a fear of heights which we have learned to “manage”, involvement in MRTs – although I “retired” in 1991. And I did spend a few months at Dounreay in the mid-90s.
    Hope your trip to Ecuador goes well. I wish you every success on Everest – a tough step up from your previous high point, but you do have plenty of serious cold-weather experience, which will stand you in good stead high on the hill.

    Hi Bob,

    Best of luck on Everest. It’s on a totally different scale to the others but Denali is no pushover. You must be in good physical shape in any event. Best wishes. DH.

    Great news, Bob – won’t be long now! Best of luck (especially where you need it – with the weather). I look forward to following your progress with much interest. My daughter (ex Caithness) and partner are in Nepal just now – well to the west of where you will be and MUCH lower (Manaslu), but having a fine time, hailstorms permitting. John W.
