"One thing is for sure, equipment is so vital on Everest, every single piece of gear must be of the highest quality ... One of my team mates was affected by snow blindness at 8500m and I remember seeing him sat down rubbing his eyes. “Adri, it’s getting blurry, I can’t see you”. These words haunted me, you just can’t take risks. This vital protection was a guarantee with the Herons"
