Alan Hinkes – 8000m: All 14 Summits – The Interview

I recently spoke to Alan Hinkes about his new book coming out this September – 8000m: All 14 Summits – in which he tells of his experiences of climbing them- the failures as well as the successes.

Alan is the only Briton to have climbed all 14 of the world’s 8,000m peaks and the 15th person ever to have done so.

It was great to catch up with him again after interviewing him in 2010 about climbing all of the tallest peaks in the 39 English shire counties, in just eight days.

I suppose it shows  there are many amazing challenges  on our doorstep if we just look for them!

The interview is out now in Trek and Mountain magazine or you can read it HERE
