Meet the adventurer who conquered 'Savage Mountain' - then had a G&T
I was worried if I took champagne it might explode on the way up because of the [air] pressure
– A lot of thought went into Jake's mountaintop tipple
Adventurer Jake Meyer, already in the record books after conquering Everest at just 21, celebrated scaling one of the most dangerous peaks in the world by trying for another achievement: having the highest-altitude cocktail in history.
After failed attempts to climb K2 in 2009 and 2016, last year it was third time lucky for Jake, making him only the tenth ever Brit to reach the top.
"Having a gin and tonic at the top I thought was a perfect way to celebrate," he told Good Morning Britain.
"The gin was OK, but the tonic slightly exploded ... which meant it was a slightly strong gin and tonic."
K2 is shorter than Everest but the climb is steeper and weather conditions worse, earning it the nickname 'Savage Mountain'.
Amazingly, Jake doesn't even train for his expeditions, relying on mental strength over muscle-power.
"I don't really run, I don't go to the gym," he revealed. "It's as much about understanding how you'll react, as well as the quality of your decision making and how well you get on with your team, as to how big your guns are."
