Dressed in red leggings and a white shirt, Robert began his 828metre climb at 6.03pm, reaching the summit just after midnight, displaying, in his own words, “the spirit to dare and succeed.””

  1. the blog has only just arrived, but the link says the vodpod no longer exists! That was quick!!

  2. David- for some reason vodpod isn’t picking up the video. I’ve edited the post to show 2 news stories, first the original post with the video (inc interview) and second emirates247.com coverage with plenty of photos and a bit of video.
