Starlight Mt Everest 2011 Expedition  

 

My name is Stewart Edge and at 0815 May 12th I summited the highest mountain in the world, Mount Everest 8,850m/29035ft. Climbing Everest has been one of my childhood ambitions and was the ultimate challenge. It was harder than I ever imagined, pushing me to my absolute limit of endurance. I  worked as part of a team to tackle the route first ascended by Sir Edmond Hillary and Sherpa Tenzing Norgay;  The Southeast Ridge
 
As well as fulfilling a lifelong dream I raised over £40,000, for the Starlight Children's Foundation. Starlight bring smiles and laughter into the lives of seriously and terminally ill children, by granting wishes and creating fun in all UK Hospitals and hospices.
