Welcome to Snow Leopard 2018 or Bust!

Hello I'm Mansel Kersey and as an adventurer, a mountaineer (and all round optimist!), I decided to set myself the challenge to summit 5 peaks of 7000 m+ mountains in Russia, all in under 30 days! If I can achieve this, not only will I receive the prestigious Snow Leopard Award (a Soviet mountaineering award, which is still recognised in the Commonwealth of Independent States), I will also be the first British climber to do so AND I will break a World Record!

This website is dedicated to this expedition; the amazing teams of people who are supporting my quest, my training, the challenges and all the highs (hopefully few lows!) along the way .... buckle up, we're off!
