Climbers approaching Camp 3, Lhotse Face, Everest

Some of you know that I went on a charity trek up Kilimanjaro last September under the guidance of Adventure Alternative, a Belfast-based outfit which brought us safely to the top and back. Their director and founder Gavin Bate, is currently perched on the South Col just below the summit of Everest and he’ll be making his bid for the top tonight. You can hear his audio message here:

Anyone who wants to support Gavin may do so through his charity, Moving Mountains. This is a brilliant cause and you should give even a few quid. Amazing guy. You can also follow him on twitter if you’re so inclined.
