In 1984 a small group of climbers from the world's flattest continent pulled
off an audacious ascent of Mount Everest - they put a new route up the north
face in lightweight style with no oxygen or sherpa support. Six years later, one
of the summiteers, Tim Macartney-Snape decided to return to Everest after he
realized neither he nor any other person who had climbed the mountain had truly
climbed the entire 8,848 meters, as that would have meant starting from sea
level. That is, no one had yet climbed it from "sea to summit".
In the spring of 1990 Tim had a swim in the tepid waters of India's Bay of
Bengal then set off on foot across the Gangetic plain toward the distant
Himalayan foothills. Four months later, after climbing alone from Base Camp and
without the assistance of oxygen, he set foot once again on the highest point on
earth. Tim's solo ascent of Mt. Everest was named the "Sea to Summit"
Back in Australia, Tim joined forces with climbing friend, sewing enthusiast
and design guru Roland Tyson to build a business that could make use of their
knowledge of the outdoors to create truly ingenious, well-made but affordable
outdoor equipment. They named their company Sea to Summit after Tim's expedition
and the business prospered.
