Rock from the summit of Mount Everest

The rock that Jack has his paw on was very kindly carried down from the summit of Mount Everest by seven times summiteer and high altitude medical specialist Dr Rob Casserley of Trek 8848. Actually, it apparently comes from about 150 yards just to the side of the icy summit but who's counting! If you're interested in trekking to Everest Base Camp with Rob and fellow Everest summiteer Pasang Nuru Sherpa just drop them a line here. You really do get to see the Khumbu Valley from an insider's perspective and I simply couldn't recommend them more highly. Jack's been boasting ever since this photo that he's rested his paw on the summit of Mount Everest and has been cheekily crowing, 'That wasn't so hard - I really don't know what all the fuss is about!' Though in actual fact there really has been a dog get at least as far as the Khumbu Ice-Fall - here.
