#Elevate programme now available for free to all Secondary Schools and Youthreach Centres in Clare. Elevate - Raising the Banner for Youth Wellness.

Great to meet up with these boyos today on home soil, thur Irish Crew on Everest, all we were missing was @cianobrolchain who summitted #lhotse and of course the background of the Khumbu icefall ! Thanks to Nepal Ireland society for a wonderful day today. Here's to more Irish visitors to Nepal over the coming years, an average of 4,000 per year make the trip, and this year is looking about 40% up on last year. An amazing country where the best part isn't even the mountains but the incredible people you meet. #nepal #visitnepal #nepalirelandsociety #everest #mountains

#elevate supporting young peoples wellness in the banner county with an initial programme of 5 elements now on offer to all secondary schools and youthreach in the county, all fully paid for by Elevate..this is just the start.. support us at this epic gig..

Great to be back on my old stomping ground, #Carrantouhill in Kerry, Irelands highest point at 1038mtrs. I've probably stood on top 100 times now (although 8 of those was in one day!) and the view never tires! This time joined by Peter and Darina from Slovakia, I met Peter on Everest and he plans to take another shot at it in'18, he's taking the very risky option of climbing with no oxygen, which has incredibly high death rate and high risks of frostbite, but he's up for it, powerful, and prepared. We climbed the #howlingridge with @kerryclimbing.ie and met team @armadaspanishpoint on the summit. Who we descended with via the Heavenly Gates. Halfway out the guides get a call to a rescue and kick into action. So much respect for all the Irish mountain rescue members, mostly volunteers, giving up their time and taking risks to keep us all safe when in trouble, hopefully I will never have to use them, but seeing them work makes me realise what legends they are!

Got some time on the Wicklow hills around Roundwood this week, great to back to the place that I got some wonderful training sessions in over the years with @cianobrolchain and more recently with Brian Bateson, this time no pressure on so could really soak in the views, take some snaps, and remind myself of the wonderful benefits of the great outdoors for the mind and body. Speaking today at #beoatarmadahotel brought it all back again. So time to plan some more time out and about I'm thinking! #wicklowway #wicklowmountains #mountainclimbing #getoutandruntrails

Nice bit of Friday reading for everyone. I was so fortunate to get the chance to speak with Everest climber @johnjohnburke. You might have seen him on the front cover of the @rteguide last week. We spoke everything from how his journey to Everest began (it's kind of crazy when that was), his training coming into it including continuously climbing up and down Carrantuohill for 24 hours, we also got into mindset hacks he had for up in the mountain and where do goals go from here after checking one of the biggest goals a human could have off the list. It's detailed, it's inspiring and John is an absolute legend. Check it out - link in bio. Thanks again @johnjohnburke --------------------------------------------

A proud moment to receive this wonderful presentation from Gertie McDonnell, mother of Ger McDonnell Irish mountaineer who rests on K2 after his attempts to conduct a rescue on 2nd August 2008, after being the first Irish person to summit this deadly mountain. So proud to support their annual cycle to Doolin in his memory. Wonderful people. So proud to also congratulate @ascenthimalayas @tpemba_sherpa and @john.snorri for summiting K2 over the weekend after sharing the time on the expedition with them when they successfully climbed to the summit of #Lhotse beside #everest with @cianobrolchain the first Irish person to summit it.

Good luck to Tsering from @ascenthimalayas who is pushing hard for a summit on #k2 now, with John from Iceland. A super combination of Client and Guide. Prayers for safe ascent and descent. 🙏 here @pasangtenzing gives an idea of Tserings capabilities after we arrived at Base Camp. #sherpapower .

The summit photo, just realised this wasn't posted, raising the Clare flag was a special moment, but raising the Elevate logo is what was most significant for me, raising awareness for this new organisation and the great work to come in supporting the wellness of young people in the banner county. Thanks to everyone who supported and donated and worked on this project so far. This will be the greatest journey of all.... 'It's not the mountains we conquer, but ourselves' Edmund Hillary. Here's to all the young people who are struggling to conquer their own personal mountains.

Thanks to the @independent.ie for the wonderful coverage today in the weekend section, of the #everest story and #elevate

Just one month since I got home from #everest in one piece, in no small part to all the people who helped me train and prepare my body and mind, firstly @trevorslattery who gave his time selflessly to get my S&C up to speed standing side by side with me on long endurance session, our other partner in crime @braceeli for all help and advice in and out of the gym, and the rushed packing before departure! all the @crossfitennis_ trainers and crew especially @clods123 who did her very best and made progress on my bad mobility! Karen Weeks Kinvara for tuning my brain to keep positive and handle set backs, @excelphysiotherapy for the Pilates and the talented Sean for Physio work, @peterjoconnell for the time on hills and support @soulogav for the advice and equipment, @chefpjackson and all @armadaspanishpoint for all the snacks out there and nutritional prep. All the friends like Duke who got me training and kept me focused and all who kept me company at different stage like the 24hr challenge. Irish climbers like Paul, Mark, @falveypat @mortellrob and especially @cianobrolchain for training and prep advice. Brian Bateson/ climb it for the cold days and great company guiding in Wicklow, @climbingadele @jeffbanksmountainguide For training abroad. And everyone else who kept me working before I left to get me down alive and kicking.
