Aptly named for an alpinist, Kenton Cool is a British mountaineer and UIAGM mountain guide. Kenton is one of Britain’s leading alpine climbers with record first ascents and seven successful Everest summits. In 2008, Kenton led Sir Ranulph Fiennes’ attempt at scaling the world’s highest peak. A year later, Kenton again teamed up with Sir Ranulph and Michael Kobold in an effort to raise the Navy SEAL flag on top of Mt. Everest. The team reached the summit on May 21st, 2009. As one of the finest mountaineers of modern times, Kenton has brought a fast and light approach to high altitude climbing in the Himalayas, often in totally committing situations. He has also completed 18 successful expeditions in the Greater Ranges. A nominee for the prestigious Piolet d’Or, Kenton Cool can be booked for mountaineering expeditions via his company, Dream Guides (www.dream-guides.com). A Kobold brand ambassador since 2007, Kenton prefers the ultra-light Soarway Diver Titanium on a lightweight nylon strap while climbing; when he’s doing more mundane tasks like helping his wife Jazz do the grocery shopping, Kenton trusts his Phantom Tactical Chronograph to help him navigate the endless aisles of British supermarkets.
