Wetherspoon enthusiast and keen hiker Paul Chaffer was unable to make it to his local pub for the recent international beer festival.
Instead, Paul, who lives in Leeds, was climbing to Base Camp Everest (17,598 feet).
Despite not being able to drop in for a pint at his regular Wetherspoon pubs (Becketts Bank, Stick or Twist, The Cuthbert Brodrick and Wetherspoons – all in Leeds city centre), he was keen to show his support for the event, by wearing the Wetherspoon Real Ale Festival T-shirt on his trek.
Paul, pictured at base camp, said: “The trip was my 50th birthday present to myself – and it was a fantastic experience.
“I wore the T-shirt from the moment I left the UK, through the villages of Nepal, along the trek and then up to base camp.
“If anyone wishes to beat my challenge, the highest a Wetherspoon T-shirt has been worn, then they will have to reach the summit of Everest or climb K2!”
