Are you ready to tackle Everest?
Our friends at Winfields Outdoors have created this brilliant infographic so you can do a quick test to see whether you are ready to tackle Everest.
Asking questions such as 'Do you have the right gear?' and 'Have you ever been this high', it is an ideal place to start your research, or check whether you're fully prepared. Hopefully you'll also have a copy of our guidebook to Everest too as we also offer some useful guidance, even if we say so ourselves.
*(Please note this does contain useful information but should not be your sole resource when planning to scale the world's largest mountain.)
