At the age of 23, well known adventurer Bear Grylls became the youngest Briton to climb the daunting Mount Everest. Now he is showing support for 21 year old student Geordie Stewart who is set to take that title.
The London student attempted the climb last year, but had to turn back less than 400 feet from the summit, after members of his team started to suffer from altitude sickness.
Speaking to London’ Evening Standard Stewart explained: ‘Although I’ve been up Everest before there is still a huge amount of excitement. I feel better prepared physically and mentally this time.‘
