Adventurer Rhys takes on new Arctic challenge

Daily Echo: Rhys Jones and his wife Laura.

12:00pm Friday 18th April 2014

AS the wife of globe-trotting adventurer Rhys Jones, she was growing a little tired of sitting at home while her husband had all the fun. So Laura Jones, 25, jumped at the chance when 27-year-old Rhys asked her to join him on his latest expedition. For the first time Laura will be at her husband’s side as he leaves civilisation behind and tackles some of the toughest terrain imaginable. The couple aim to conquer the three highest mountains in the Arctic Circle before embarking on the first ever ascent of an unclimbed peak – so little is known about it, it has yet to be named. With temperatures expected to plunge as low as -40C, Rhys and Laura say their bodies will be pushed to the limit. Rhys, formerly of Bartley in the New Forest and now living in Dubai, admitted that the trip could go “very well or very wrong”. He added: “I think Laura got sick of waving me off on trips so over dinner one night I just said I want to do this Arctic challenge and I want you to be there with me. “Her reaction was priceless – she just said ‘yes’ instantly.” The two-week expedition will start on May 14, when the couple will head to Iceland before flying to the foot of a glacier in Greenland. They and fellow climber Simon Yates will begin by tackling the highest peak in the Arctic, the 3,693m Mount Gunnbjornsfjeld. The trio have also set their sights on Mount Dome (3,682m) and Mount Cone (3,669m) as well as the so far unclimbed and unnamed peak. Rhys has an impressive track record when it comes to tackling extreme conditions in far flung corners of the globe.
