On January 6, 2018, Chris Bombardier proved that “ain’t no mountain high enough” for people affected by a bleeding disorder, having scaled Mt Vinson in Antarctica. It was the final mountain on his ambitious quest to climb the highest mountain on every continent of the world.

Chris became the first person with haemophilia to summit Mt Vinson in Antarctica and thus joined a group of just over 400 people who have accomplished the “7 Summits”.

Chris has smashed the stereotype that his condition has limited his lifestyle. Instead, he’s used it to show that he can lead a full, adventurous life. He’s a massive inspiration and we reckon Chris should try knock off the tallest mountain in the UK: Ben Nevis, right here in Scotland!
