After a Scottish and Alpine apprenticeship, Tom Richardson began
climbing in the Himalaya in 1979.

Since that time he has climbed extensively around the world and
has been on twice as many trips to the Greater Ranges as his age.
This includes 7 expeditions to 8000m peaks across the Himalaya
and Karakoram, both leading commercial groups and climbing
with friends.

His favourite trip is, he says, usually the one he has just come back
from, irrespective of whether it is from a remote corner of Mongolia
or Pakistan or leading a commercial group on a Trekking Peak
in Nepal.

He is married to Janet and lives in Sheffield, England.
