At that age can you mentally cope wih the rigours of the climb? Physically he may be fine, but climbing Everest surely demands an element of maturity?

Hi Cy,

sorry , I could not reply before as Richard had asked me to keep it silent until the official pressrelease, but Christopher is actually part of our 7summits.com/7summits-club.com team.

He will be joined by 2 very experienced climbing cameramen who will be filiming. See my special SightOnEverest Blog (http://www.sightoneverest.com/blog/) for the official pressrelease as sent out by his father Richard Harris, who will be joining as well.

Cheers,
Harry
