Lobuche East Peak Summit attempt & Mt. Everest Base Camp Trek

Event dates: Monday 24th October – Saturday 12th November

Dan, who is a local personal trainer and works at Marshside Health Club, Southport has decided to take on the mammoth task of climbing Lobuche East Peak after trekking to Mt. Everest Basecamp! Dan has a keen interest in mountains, a burning sense of adventure and firmly believes we should see all the wonders this world has to offer.

He will be joining a group of climbers who will be trekking under the experienced eyes of the Elite Exped team, which was founded by Nimsdai Purja MBE. You can catch his 14 Peaks Documentary on Netflix.

Dan is looking to climb, not only to Everest Base camp which is a staggering 5364M high, but then to continue on to Lobuche East Peak which will see Dan at a dizzying height of 6119m above sea level, higher even than the glaciers of the Khumbu region of Nepal!

The whole expedition is planned to take 20 days, including pre-climb training days, rest days and acclimatization days.

This expedition is not for the faint hearted and we wish Dan all the luck in the world and the best weather so he can enjoy the stunning views that he should be able to enjoy.

Let's help him smash his target and boost our funds to see us and the animals over the winter.

Dan begins his expedition later this year on 24th October.

Our updates

Dan has just updated us with his latest preparations for this challenge.

He has climbed 3 peaks in the Lake District over one weekend, all of them over 700m high!

Climbed to Cadair Idris summit in Wales, which is nearly 900m high and is increasing his endurance training in his running. We're tired just hearing about it!

Dan is also planning some more difficult challenges over the summer, which is likely to involve climbing 24 peaks in the Lake District, within a 24-hour trekking time, which will be over 48 hours. This will equate to two 12-hour trekking stints! Can you even imagine? Although Mt. Everest is not a mountain to be taken lightly.

This challenge is taking serious dedication & commitment and we are full of admiration and incredibly grateful to Dan for choosing to support us through this expedition.

Please show Dan as much support as you can by sponsoring him.
