Interesting citizens of Bath Number one, driving through Larkhall today I spotted Stephen Venables.
Stephen is one of the most renowned mountain climbers in the world today. In 1988 he was part of an expedition which pioneered a new route up Everest and was the only member of the team to reach the summit. Caught by darkness at 8,600 metres, without oxygen, exposed to the elements and with no shelter, Stephen survived a harrowing night on the mountain.
In fact he was the first Britain to climb Everest without Oxygen, the pictures shows Stephen, putting up his Christmas lights (without the help of oxygen)
