Francis is a young guy with big ambitions.
He is only 17 years old but hopes to one day climb K2. He’s got a long way to go but with such a huge target, every step along the way is an achievement in itself.
So far, his journey has taken him to Ladakh in the Indian Himalayas, and solo along the newly described Sutherland Trail in the Northern Highlands.
You can read more about Francis’ adventures on his own website.
I am trying to help Francis where I can but freely admit that climbing an 8,000-metre peak, let alone K2, is well beyond my remit. If you think you can help then please do get in touch.
