Following the teams recent success in reaching the summit of Manaslu (8156m), Ed Parker and Expedition Leader Russell Brice have now selected the Walking with the Wounded Mt.Everest Summit and Support Team.
A team of 5 wounded soldiers will attempt to reach Mount Everest in May next year. Measured at 8848 m Mt.Everest is the highest mountain in the world, and one of the most inhospitable terrains on earth. The Summit Team will consist of North Pole veterans Martin Hewitt andJaco Van Gass along with Karl Hinnett, David Wiseman and Francis Atkinson.
We are delighted to announce that we will be organising two expeditions to Base Camp to visit this incredible mountain and to give support to the Wounded summit team. There are limited places on these two-week treks to Base Camp and we would urge anyone who would like to stand up and be counted with a charity trek to Base Camp to let us know as soon as possible.
The provisional dates are April 15th to May 6th and May 2nd to 23rd.
The Base Camp Team will consist of Daniel Majid who will be Head of Expedition Communications, along with Andy Hawkins, Manindra Raiand Chris Gwilt who will each lead the Base Camp Expeditions.
