Fergus White, from Dublin Ireland, had wondered for some time how far he might be able to push himself. He pondered if the grand adventures he'd seen on TV and read about in newspapers and books were for some reason off-limits to him.

He traveled to the Himalayas to train as a mountaineer. He returned the following year to attempt Everest. His book, Ascent in Hell, details that adventure.
