Youngest Yorkshireman To Mount Everest

Taking Yorkshire To The Summit Of Everest.

I’m attempting to become the youngest Yorkshireman to the summit of Mount Everest (8848m). My expedition next spring will be my first time in Nepal and aged 23 I will be one of the youngest Brits to attempt the climb. 

Mount Everest is a serious undertaking and I have spent the last 6 years preparing for it. With climbs in Bolivia, Tanzania, Russia, Norway, France and the UK, I feel more than ready to take on my biggest challenge yet! I will be attempting to summit via the via the South Col route from Nepal, the famous route Hillary and Tenzing followed In May 1953. I will be facing temperatures as low as -60 degrees and gusts of up 100mph. Sounds fun right? 

My climb won’t be possible without the help and support of friends, family, sponsors and like minded strangers. I’m setting out on this dream to show that with the right attitude, approach, training and mindset, you can achieve more than you think. If I look back and consider all the moments when I thought about giving up, I wouldn’t have got out of bed this morning. Anything is possible when you believe!

and My timeline in the lead up to Mount Everest will be shown on the home page here. I have just over 200 days before I depart for Nepal, and if everything goes to plan I will hopefully be on the summit of Everest around the middle of May (weather window allowing) and become the youngest Yorkshireman to the top. This won’t be my first big adventure, and it most certainly won’t be my last – let’s just see what the next few months bring, but you can bet I will be giving absolutely everything to give myself the best possible chance of success. If you feel you can help me with this chance please get in touch here. “Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much”. 


Thanks J.

Plastic Free To Mount Everest

Our Plastic Cycle

My names Josh Hoyle and next spring I will be attempting a world first summit of Mount Everest (8848m) plastic free. My journey to Everest will hopefully raise awareness of the catastrophic plastic pollution that is affecting every person on this planet. There’s over 8 billion tonnes of plastic, and more than 300 million tonnes in our oceans. It is estimated that by 2050 there will be more weight in plastic than fish in our oceans. These statistics are horrific, and more needs to be done to challenge this plastic cycle. My world first Everest attempt will hopefully kick start a change in the way we approach even the smallest tasks in our life. If I can get to the summit of Mount Everest plastic free, what change can you make?

My Everest attempt will take my around two months to complete, In those two months around 50 millions tonnes of plastic will be deposited into our oceans – That’s nearly 1 tonne of plastic for every person in the UK. In just two months!!! My journey to the top of the world will hopefully show why we don’t need to use as much plastic as we all think and demonstrate changes that need to be put in place to safeguard the future of our planet. 

I would however, like to personally  congratulate Mr Hammond on the new budget announcement today, which would imply taxation of plastic at source. All plastic with less than 30% recyclable plastics will be taxed from 2022. By taxing virgin plastic at source we can begin to stem the tide of plastics that are blighting our marine world. We need to turn off the plastic tap and this is a step in the right direction. Britain can and must lead the environmental movement and I want to be a big part of this! 

This is just the beginning. 

Thanks J.
