I love the mountains; how they make me feel and what I get from being there. An experience completed by the people around me. This was a truly epic trip with Ed and M2M; one that continues to unfold with the feelings and emotions to go with it. Amazing! I'll be smiling about this achievement for a long, long time. Great work team!

Being in the mountains made me and my problems pale into insignificance. The perspective I was able to gain surrounded by such natural beauty couldn't have been achieved just anywhere and I've learnt things about myself I never knew.

Joe Feldman

The trip allowed me to do much more than climb a mountain, it reminded me what it's like to unplug from routine and build genuine relationships without the distractions and quite simply it showed me the true meaning of determination and resilience. I'd do it again in a heartbeat and will be forever grateful.
