#EBCTeam2016: Instructor Angus Murray

Our Reach Beyond Expedition to Everest Base Camp leaves early tomorrow morning! We can't wait to follow along in the adventure via updates on this very blog.

This group is in great hands with instructor Angus Murray, as this will be Angus's fifth trip to Everest Base Camp. Even better, In 2008, Angus became the 50th Canadian to successfully reach the top of Everest!

Angus is thrilled to be going back to the Himalaya, and is excited to be going with such a strong group from such a wide variety of backgrounds.  Angus began his career at Outward Bound Canada in 1992 as an assistant instructor and is proud to be working with the organization again as the Reach Beyond Expedition Coordinator, in addition to leading the Everest Base Camp expedition. 

Angus Murray is an accomplished outdoor educator and guide and has guided expeditions throughout North America, and in Africa, South America and Europe. He has been working in the outdoor industry for the past 30 years.

Angus is on his way to completing the seven summits (the highest mountains of each of the seven continents), having successfully climbed five of these mountains to date.
