Sponsor Gear/Equipment/Products/Services

Climbing the highest peak in the world requires numerous top notch equipment. Cutting corners on the quality of the gear can mean life or death in the harshest of environments at such an altitude. As preparation for the climb is just as or even more important than the climb itself, training supplements are essential as well (eg. sports drinks, energy bars/gels, recovery supplements). Gym/ Running/ Swimming facilities are also essential in the preparatory phase. Your sponsorship enables me to purchase the right equipment and consume essential training supplements, and this gives me the best chances of success.
