This morning John (JF as most of you know him) departed from YVR for Katmandu and began his 3rd trip to the highest point this planet has to offer. Though often elusive when answering questions about being a legit bad*ss, I can tell you that John is the youngest ACMG guide to summit Everest, the only ACMG guide to do it twice, and when this trip is done will be the only Canadian ever to summit three times. If you’re interested in following John’s progress check out his blog: Everest 2011. John and his client will be out of country until June 5th with a summit push planned for sometime in mid May. John if you read this: safe travels and safe return, good luck.
