Ranulph Fiennes - Is there no stopping this man?

#1
Just heard on the radio that he has said that he is going to have another crack at Everest. It's only nearly killed him twice already, but he says that this will be a low key affair and that he sees it at a personal challenge now!

Feck me, I'm sure that when Gerry Anderson created Captain Scarlett he would have done worse than to have modelled him on Ran.

Sniffing around for a link....

Fair play to the fella. I wonder if he'll take the challenge too far and end up topping himself just to try and do it!

"Whether my heart problems will occur again or not I don't know but there's not much you can do about it," he said.

"The last time I had a heart attack I was on an easyJet flight reading a magazine!"
The bloke's nuttier that squirrel sh1t! :lol:

I want a cople of kilos of whatever he's on please :D

How many toes is he down to now? He'll be in the record books for that if nothing else.

He's not got plans to pass from this world with a drooling, alzeimers whimper, but with style and doing something far younger bods would fail at. I really hope he makes the summit, and if he doesn't, that he has a crack at something else instead - three times not doing it is his body REALLY saying "FFS bloke, give me a break!"

I'm afraid not - saw a programme not so long ago where a double leg amputee reached the summit!

Wasn't Fiennes RTU'd from the Hereford area for taking some spare PE4 and using it to demolish a film set that was casting a blight on an area of outstanding natural beauty? ISTR he said as much on Top Gear shortly before explaining how to amputate frost-bitten fingers with a Black and Decker jigsaw in the comfort of your own shed.

Sadly I suspect after the death of his missus the bloke could be going for suicide by adventure!!!

Met him in Dhofar,not long after he left The Army under a 'cloud'.Good soldier.We were told ''on no account get friendly with this officer''.Of course that was completely ignored!!
