Here at Wolflabs, we are challenging ourselves to climb Mount Everest in just 5 days! Over the course of one week (11th-15th May) we will be completing a stage a day of the typical camp route for Mount Everest. For obvious reasons we cannot do this on the real Mount Everest, so instead will be scaling our stairs at home. We have calculated that 3,688 flights of a standard staircase is the equivalent of climbing Mount Everest. You can see below our camp route and the staff participating in each stage.
We are doing this to raise money for The People's Pantry, Mind and Women's Aid. If you would like to help support us you can donate on our just giving page here. All donations are greatly appreciated no matter how big or small.
Throughout the week we will keep everyone posted on our progress through all our social media platforms, so make sure to give us a follow and support us throughout our journey to the top of Mount Everest!
