The Call of the Mountain

This moblog is about breaking the boundaries of communication by using a mobile anywhere, any time. And I’m taking it to the extreme…

My Mission

Sponsored by Motorola, I’m heading to the top of Mount Everest to make the world’s highest land-based mobile phone call and text. I’ll be posting the evidence here in the coming weeks. Watch this space!

Do you have pics or video from great heights? Email or MMS your images to: everest@moblg.net

My Mobile
I’m using Motorola’s new MOTORIZR Z8, a cool slider phone that shows and records video at 30 frames a second. It’s also got 4GB of memory so I can store loads of pics and videos of my family.

My Records
When I was 29, I secured the world record for climbing the highest point of every European country in 835 days. I also hold the world record for climbing more of the world's highest points than any other person.

In my day job, I’m managing director at Head 4 Heights, the UK’s fastest growing aerial adventure centre.

Absolutely amazing. Is that a world record for sending the higest ever picture message?

One way or another it's got to be teh highest point on earth documented on moblog UK. Not including pics from aeroplanes - cos that's cheating!

Well Rob you made it!
What an achievement. I still remember you coming to see me in my office at Motorola Basingstoke and thinking, "you know this man really deserves a chance to be the first". I am delighted that we made the right decision. Although the land of Motorola is now behind me I have loved watching your journey. A very well done. Great job. The phones not bad either!
