Will I ever climb Mount Everest?
Most probably not, too expensive and too commercial.
Then why did I name the website ClimbEverest, you may ask ?
Every defiance, no matter what can be someone's Everest. It doesn't matter how big this endeavor is. There is a challenge in everything, even in the smallest step, the smallest distance, the smallest hill. Conquering your own Everest means setting your goal towards a new challenge : a new Everest.
My Own Everest started in August 2009 by Climbing Mont Blanc (4810m).
The following year I summited Elbrus West summit (5642 m) via the North side as first Belgian ever.
Next were Mera North Peak (6476m) summited 25 october 2011 at 06:40 and Baruntse as First Belgian ever (7152m) summited 3 november 2011 at 11:30 both in Nepal.
In 2013 I climbed Cerro Chirripo (3850 m) the highest mountain of Costa Rica and Central America and the Mont Ventoux (1912 m) in France.
In 2014 I conquered Salak Phet (744 m) the highest peak on Koh Chang Island, Thailand and my awakening.
In 2015 I climbed the Dreiländerspitze (3197 m) Austria and the start of a new beginning. Four weeks later I set off to Nepal to climb "The Big Black" Makalu (8436m). On 25 april a major earthquake struck Nepal and put a halt on all climbing.
In march 2017 I summited six peaks in the High Atlas: among which Toubkal (4167 m).
19 may 2017 at 08:55 I stood on top of Lhotse (8516 m) and so fulfilling my dream.
I went from 3000 to 4000 to 5000 to 6000 to 7000 to 8000.
Does this mean that I have to look for a new hobby now?
Not at all, a lot more mountains are waiting to be conquered. Every mountain is a challenge even the smallest hill.
