Joining us for Calshot’s Everest Jubilee Challenge - the record-breaking adventurer and Calshot Climbing Wall member Adrian Hayes will deliver a presentation from 4-5pm on the beauty, brutality and reality of climbing Mount Everest.

As a British record-breaking polar explorer/adventurer and former British Army Gurkha Officer, Hayes is best known for reaching the three extreme points of the Earth - the Three Poles Challenge - which involved walking all the way to the North Pole, South Pole and summiting Mount Everest, all in the shortest period of time (1 year, 217 days - his first Guinness World record). Setting a second Guinness World record in 2009, Hayes embarked on the longest unsupported snowkiting journey in Arctic history, the 3,120 kilometres (1,940 mi) vertical crossing of the Greenland ice cap.

Hayes has also featured in/presented three documentaries: The Greenland Quest in 2011 for the National Geographic Channel, Footsteps of Thesiger in 2013 and In Inner Mongolia in 2017 for the Discovery Channel.
