Former bored office worker turned adventure travel writer, James Forrest is the record-breaking adventure who lives mountains. Nicknamed Mountain Man by the Sunday Telegraph, James climbed all 446 mountains in England and Wales in six months in 2017 – the fastest ever time. And in 2018 he repeated the feat in Ireland, climbing 273 mountains in just 8 weeks – another peak-bagging record.
