Ben Fogle Everest Expedition at Great British Speakers

‘At 7.30am on the 16th April, after more than five weeks of acclimatising and training on Mount Everest, I finally realised a childhood dream when I successfully climbed the 29,000 ft high mountain,’ said Ben.

Unfortunately, his fellow climbing companion former Olympic cyclist Victoria Pendleton had to pull out of the expedition a few weeks earlier due to medical issues.
