A special Everest story…

William McFatter

A special story this spring is about one of our clients who is in pursuit of an important goal in his life: climbing Everest.

British national William McFatter, 43, working for a UK firm that deals with personal security in high risk situations, had a dream to stand on the summit of the highest mountain in the world. Although physically fit and mentally trained to operate in difficult circumstances, he lacked climbing experience at high altitude. He asked us if we would be willing to create a private program that prepared him for his goal.

After a few discussions we both agreed and we prepared a one month training and climbing program in Nepal, phase 1. If he would do well, we would support William in phase 2, climbing Everest from the Tibetan side. Despite deep snow and difficult trails this spring, William passed the training with glory. Guided by Galden Sherpa, they eventually managed to become the first summiteers of Mera Peak 6476m this season, followed by a quick and solid ascent of the more technical Lobuche East 6119m.

Right now William, Namgyal and Galden are in the Chinese Everest Base Camp to perform their last Puja ceremony before heading up Everest. We wish this small, but extremely strong team good luck from our side.

Climb safe and please return healthy and rich in experiences!

  1. We need some information about climber McFatter.. his date of birth, first arrival date in Kathmandu and departure date to Tibet… and estimated return date to Kathmandu to enable us to meet him in Kathmandu for The Himalayan Database
