Tim Macartney-Snape

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Tim Macartney-Snape is a world renowned mountain climber and adventurer. On October 3rd 1984 Macartney-Snape and Greg Mortimer were the first Australians to reach the summit of Mount Everest.They reached the summit, without oxygen, via a new route on the North Face (North Face to Norton Couloir). In 1990, Macartney-Snape became the first person to walk and climb from Sea Level to the top of Mount Everest which he writes about in his book Everest: From Sea to Summit.

Tim Macartney-Snape was born on 5 January 1956 in Tanganikya (now Tanzania) where he lived on a farm with his British father and Irish mother. In 1967, the family moved to Australia, to a farm in north eastern Victoria. After attending Geelong Grammar School, Tim studied at the Australian National University (ANU) in Canberra where he joined the ANU Mountaineering Club (ANUMC) and obtained a BSc in between bushwalking, rock climbing and nordic skiing trips.

Mountaineering

In 1978, Tim travelled to India as part of the ANUMC's expedition to Dunagiri (7,066 m). After prolonged bad weather and several team members fell ill, the leader decided to abandon the expedition. Tim and Lincoln Hall volunteered to climb up to retrieve equipment and ropes that had been left in place for a summit attempt. But Tim was also thinking of making a dash for the summit if the weather cleared. They were in luck and reached the summit but then spent a night in the open without sleeping bags and were fortunate to survive a blizzard on their descent.

In 1983, Macartney-Snape participated in an expedition to Annapurna II (7,937 m) successfully reaching the summit. The descent was delayed by a blizzard and the expedition ran out of food during the last five days. They were reported missing and when the expedition eventually returned they received significant publicity.

The publicity from the Annapurna II expedition helped attract sponsorship from TV for the next expedition which was to climb Mt Everest from the northern side. On 3 October 1984, Macartney-Snape became the first Australian to climb Mt Everest, an achievement for which he was awarded the Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM).

Later in 1984, Macartney-Snape accompanied Dick Smith on a trek in Nepal. Smith was the founder of the Australian Geographic Society and in 1988 he agreed that the society would sponsor an expedition to trek from the Bay of Bengal to the peak of Mt Everest. This became known as the Sea to Summit Expedition and was the first time anyone had walked from sea level and reached the top of Mt Everest. The summit was reached on 11 May 1990 where Macartney-Snape placed the flag of the Australian Geographic Society, his sponsor.
