Simon Yates has lived in England’s Lake District — the mountainous area in the northwestern part of the country known for having the largest mountains in the region — for the last 28 years. His time spent exploring its cracks and crevices has fed a love of the outdoors and climbing that has proven a lifelong pursuit and storied career for the accomplished mountaineer.
For 35 years and counting, Simon’s explorations have taken him all over the world. He's climbed and sailed as far west as Alaska, as far east as New Zealand, and he's nearly spanned the globe latitudinally from Greenland to the Antarctic. He is a veteran of over 70 mountaineering expeditions to remote mountain ranges on nearly every continent.
