Adelaide Eye & Laser Centre welcomed high altitude mountain climber and motivational speaker, Jimmy Smith to the team in 2017.
In 2017, he will be also joining forces with National Geographic in preparation for some big climbs:
Mt Cho Oyu (26,854 feet 6th highest on earth, across the valley from Everest) Dangerous climb in terms of extreme altitude risk
Mt Ama Dablam (most technically challenging climb in the Himalaya, very dangerous ascent of this peak due to its vertical face and huge avalanche risk)
Mt Rainier (solo ascent on the highest peak in the US)
"My personal goal moving forward is to climb the worlds 14 mountains above 8000m in altitude but I want to do this without the use of oxygen, something no Australian has yet done"
