Caudwell Xtreme Everest is a research project coordinated by the University College London, through their Centre for Altitude, Space and Extreme environment medicine. In 2007, special exercise laboratories were positioned along the trekking route to Everest Base Camp. Over 200 volunteers were tested as they climbed progressively higher into the thin atmosphere. More research was performed on a group of scientists who climbed to the summit of Everest. This is my diary as one of the volunteers.

My finger is healing up a treat. It has gone all wrinkly now the swelling has reduced and there is dead skin surrounding the puncture mark in the centre. Bizarre.
