But great climate made the push for the top much simpler than expected
New Zealander Edmund Hillary, who with Sherpa Tenzing Norgay was the to begin with to overcome Mount Everest in 1953, said recently that he wished Mr Inglis the best of luck
In 2004, another amputee climber, Nawang Sherpa of Tibet, climbed Everest, yet Inglis is the to begin with double-amputee to make the peak
Mr Inglis, a winemaker, climbed 26,906-ft Mount Cho Oyu in Tibet in 2004
Before clearing out to climb Everest, the father of three said the further he goes up a mountain the less impediment he has
