Julian is climbing Manaslu for SmileHigh

Julian has set a target of $27,000 to raise for SmileHigh or $1 for every foot that he climbs on Manaslu.

Julian has been involved with oral health aid in Nepal since 2003. In 2004 Julian successfully climbed Mt Everest and launched a dental project to reduce the significant dental problems he had observed in the Sherpa children of the Everest region. The project has grown and is now known as SmileHigh. In August this year Julian will first lead a SmileHigh dental mission in conjunction with the United Nations World Food Program to Samagon a very remote village at the foot of Manaslu. After the ten day dental mission Julian will join Russell Brice's Himex expedition to climb Manaslu.
