Through Adversity to Everest
Could you ever imagine climbing Everest, especially as a teenager?
Alex Staniforth isn’t a normal twenty-something guy. He wrote his first auto-biography at the age of 19 after a failed attempt at summiting Everest and even after his second aborted attempt of climbing the highest peak in the world, he hasn’t lost his drive to keep inspiring.
Yet, he’s no stranger to adversity having used the outdoor challenges to overcome personal challenges, and now sharing the peaks and troughs to inspire others to find their own Everest.
He’s already made two attempts to climb Mount Everest and is the fastest person ever to climb all 100 UK county tops in 72 days, winning the Pride of Britain Granada Reports fundraiser of the year 2017. In 2019 he founded Mind Over Mountains, a new charity to improve mental well-being by building resilience through nature.
