EverestHistory.com:  David Hiddleston


David Hiddleston was an accomplished rock climber, extreme skier and high altitude mountain guide. In 2002 while working as a guide for New Zealand based Adventure Consultants, David successfully led an Everest expedition in which he and 7 clients reached the summit. He had made an attempt to climb Everest in 2000 but was forced into an early decent due to weather. In 1996 David was in the Himalaya climbing Pumori, when he heard news of the storm and tragedy occurring on Everest, he and several others went to the mountain and worked to save lives in a rescue effort. David led many successful expeditions for Adventure Consultants including Shishapangma.

Not only in 2002 did David reach the summit of Mount Everest just months after undergoing surgery in both knees, but he also became the director and chief guide for Aspiring Guides. Aspiring Guides was founded in 1990 by the IFMGA Mountain and Ski Guides Nick Cradock, Guy Cotter and Paul Scaife.

Tragically, on New Years Eve just a year later David along with Paul Scaife, one other guide and one client were killed in a freak avalanche while guiding on Mt. Tasman. Aspiring Guides continues to climb to new heights, building a legacy and acting as a testimonial to the passion and dedication of David and Paul.
