This moblog is about breaking the boundaries of communication by using a mobile anywhere, any time. And I’m taking it to the extreme…
Sponsored by Motorola, I’m heading to the top of Mount Everest to make the world’s highest land-based mobile phone call and text. I’ll be posting the evidence here in the coming weeks. Watch this space!

I’m using Motorola’s new MOTORIZR Z8, a cool slider phone that shows and records video at 30 frames a second. It’s also got 4GB of memory so I can store loads of pics and videos of my family.
When I was 29, I secured the world record for climbing the highest point of every European country in 835 days. I also hold the world record for climbing more of the world's highest points than any other person.
In my day job, I’m managing director at Head 4 Heights, the UK’s fastest growing aerial adventure centre.
