Reason to “Kill the Hill”: To help support the Steve Prescott Foundation Everest Base Camp team achieve their goals. , Llook after everyone’s wellbeing and ensure the trip is a safe, fun and successful positive experience as I am sure it will be.

What are you most looking forward to: Seeing the whole SPF team achieve not only getting to Everest Base Camp but also getting to the top of Kala Patthar and back to Lukla safe and sound.

What are you least looking forward to: The possibility of either myself or team members suffering from AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness.)
