Review: Kendal Mountain Festival - An Evening With Kenton Cool

First published in Reviews The Westmorland Gazette: Photograph of the Author by

The unlikely-named Kenton Cool is one of Britain’s best-kept secrets – a man at the very top of his game who mixes with the stars, yet has a low profile. Maybe this is about to change because Kenton has climbed to the top of Everest an amazing nine times. I guess once would be enough for most people, but Kenton’s job as a guide is to get people to the summit of their dreams and this includes famous clients like Sir Ranulph Fiennes. This fascinating evening was hosted by another of my favourite British mountaineers, Stephen Venables, who quizzed Kenton about his motivations and experiences.
