Getting to know Chris Horobin

K2 Base Camp and the crossing of the Gondogoro La. Why.. because it has undoubtedly the best and most majestic scenery in the world. The ascent is gradual so altitude affects are limited, the technical requirements crossing the pass are not inconsiderable but they are easily managed and give incredible satisfaction to complete.

Completing the first ascent of Telthop 6150m in Ladakh in 2015.

Invest in your fitness, the fitter you are the more you will enjoy the experience, get as much hill time in as possible, running and other aerobic exercise is good but long day stamina is the most important aspect of your fitness.

Walking in the Scottish Highlands to get my fitness back after a long illness from a virus I picked up in the Amazon Jungle. I made no concious decision to become an outdoor professional, the role picked me and I fell under its spell.

None, I've done them, but I do still want to go to Patagonia and spend a month there.
