Everest Rocks DVD documentary


In October 2007 The Mountain Company organised the Everest Rocks trek for the Love Hope Strength Foundation. To find out more about this trek take a look at the Everest Rocks website

At the end of 2008 the Love Hope Strength Foundation released a superb DVD documenting their trek, I have just got around to watching the DVD and can highly recommend it. I have copied the description of the Everest Rocks DVD below from the Love Hope Strength Foundation site:

"Two times cancer survivor and musician mike peters (the alarm) along with fellow musicians (glenn tillbrook of squeeze, slim jim phantom of the stray cats, cy curnin and jamie west-oram of the fixx, and nick harper) , cancer survivors, everest summiteers and trekkers go on a once in a lifetime journey to Mt Everest. They are on a quest to raise money for a local cancer hospital in Nepal and set the Guinness Book of World records for the highest concert on land. Proceeds from Everest Rocks purchased the first mammography machine and first internal radiation machines for the country of Nepal." Love Hope Strength Foundation
