In March 2006, Paul Adler and Fiona Adler left for their attempt to climb Mount Everest. 

We posted live updates here throughout our climb, as well as during the final stages of our preparation.  We hope that this helped our friends, family and other interested parties to experience the adventure with us along the way.

Our Support

Fiona and Paul would like to thank...

Jett have supplied Paul and Fiona with heat vests to use on their 2007 Expedition. Paul will wear it under his down suit above C3. This product has won many awards, but it hasnít been tested in the extreme cold of high altitude mountaineering, so we are interested to see how it performs. We used Hotronic foot warmers in 2006 and were very impressed with them, so hopefully the vest will work well.

Gu Sports and Blueline Sports for providing Gu Energy gels and sports drinks for us to use while on Everest.  We've found these products to be very useful for long rides and races, and believe that they will be of even greater benefit for long days of climbing when our energy is low and we need something quick and easy to digest.

Bogong Equipment supplied much of our high altitude climbing equipment at a discounted price, including our Millet Down suits. Their knowledgeable and friendly staff were always happy to help out with our requests for obscure gear.

Telemark Pyrenees were extremely helpful in finding the best crampons for Paul's Everest Millet boots.  Unfortunately there was not a huge range available in Australia, and they were able to confirm what would work best and ship to us.  They also provided a range of other equipment.
