Adrian Hayes: K2 - 60 years of the ĎSavage Mountainí

Tuesday Sep 09, 2014 - 07:00:00 PM
1 Kensington Gore, London SW7 2AR

British record-breaking polar explorer and adventurer Adrian Hayes recounts his 2013 & 2014 attempt to summit the world's 2nd highest mountain: K2


Adrian Hayes


Adrian Hayes is a British, UAE and UK-based record breaking polar explorer and adventure, keynote speaker, business coach, author and campaigner.

 

Adrian has set two Guinness World Records for Polar Expeditions- reaching the Earth's 'three poles' (North Pole, South Pole and Mt Everest) in the shortest period of time in history, and for the longest unsupported Arctic expedition to date (vertical crossing of Greenland).

On the 60th anniversary of its first ascent and a month after his return from his second, hopefully successful attempt, Adrian discusses the draw of K2’s foreboding slopes.

In 2013 Adrian attempted to summit K2, the world’s second highest mountain in Pakistan, but the expedition was aborted when an avalanche wiped out Camp 3 at 7,300 metres, killing two fellow climbers.
