Following a reconnaissance expedition to the Mount Everest region in 1950s, my grandfather famously said "I will come again and conquer you because as a mountain you can't grow, but as a human I can".
Well, nearly seventy years on, my brother and I will need to adopt this mindset.
Alexander and I have just spent nine days in Queenstown, using this time to do more climbing training and push ourselves out of our comfort zone before heading back to the Himalayas. Doing a climbing trip together is more than just a team-bonding experience, it's also about becoming more mature climbers; learning to make the decisions around weather and climbing conditions. Here we are atop Single Cone Peak, which is one of the three peaks along the Grand Traverse of the Remarkables. George Hillary Photography by Alexander Hillary
