Pat Falvey 2nd of 7 Attributes of Success - Leadership

 

Effective leadership is one of the greatest attributes to managing a successful team or organization.

To be a leader you need to posses certain traits and characteristics that encourage team members to achieve their full potential .

As a leader you need to lead and inspire through your actions and you need believe in your set-out goals and plans. You need to gain the trust and respect of the team and to stimulate them towards set-out objectives and goals.

 

A leader believes in their ability to follow goals through to the end. A good leader believes in his/her team and needs to be an effective communicator and to be fair in their expectations of team members' abilities.

A good leader has confidence, integrity, is respectful and fair and is willing to change direction when required.

Leaders lead, they take responsibility for their actions, both when successful and when they fail.

We are all leaders in our own right and when we do not get good leaders to follow, we need to be good self-leaders.

Elbrus 2014 Russia : A 7-Summit Challenge

"When Teena Gates and I first spoke first about her ambition to climb mountains she was  23 stone in weight wiht a height of 4 foot 11 inches. She was overweight, unhealthy and had a dream to make a change in her life and become healthy, fit and climb mountains. She needed to lose weight and over 12 months lost nearly half her body weight - 10 stone. Teena is inspirational in her approach and we have worked together and have had amazing experiences in training and climbing together as she has made her dreams a reality to achieve her Everest in climbing mountains, from the hills in Ireland to trekking peaks in Nepal to the slopes of Mt Elbrus in Russia. Below is her blog on Mt Elbrus. Once again proving that if you want something badly enough, you can achieve it. If you plan, train and are part of a focused team you will achieve your ambitions in life. Teena explains in her blog her feelings of anxiety, frustration, fear, excitement and elation at summiting Mt Elbrus in Russia."

Real Adventure Starts Here

I looked at the icy slope leading downhill away from me and shuddered. I knew I could go no further unless I tackled my terrors right here. The snow was hard-packed, shiny and hardened into ice. I could see the imprint of the boots that had passed before me and wondered if my feet would hold as well. Smothering all thought of what lay ahead, I took a deep breath, forcing the thin air into my lungs. I reached forward and gratefully took our leader Pat Falvey’s hand, and like a child I slowly and cautiously followed him inch-by-inch down the slope. Terrified of the drop to my right and concentrating firmly on Pat’s orange down jacket, glowing like a beacon ahead, step by step, until we finally reach a makeshift platform. Pat leaves me here with a grin and, thankfully, I hug him, assuring him I can take it from here. I step forward on my own into the dark of the drop-house and breathe a sigh of relief as the smell of human waste engulfs me, finally, I can go to the loo…

 

Why Climb Every Mountain?

I don’t know why people climb mountains. I don’t know why I do myself; and frequently when I’m climbing them, I promise I will never climb them again. Then I see clouds drift across a lofty peak or a movie with the hero stepping confidently in crampons across the rock and ice and suddenly my breath catches in my chest and I think ‘that’s me’. The reality is somewhat different. I stumble and slip in my massive insulated boots, I move awkwardly across the snow in massive down jackets, with freezing fingers squeezed into multiple pairs of gloves, trying to hold onto an axe and make it work in a way that will save your life. It’s not pretty, it’s not an average holiday, and yet we spend weeks of our lives to seek out high, frosty, deadly places to climb. Why? Perhaps in a world which is both easier and harder, the immovable presence of a mountain gives you a benchmark to pit yourself against, to measure yourself against the forces of nature and find out who you are and what you can achieve. As one of the lads said in the safety of base camp last night “If I can do what I did, and go through what I went through up there and come out smiling, what am I capable of back down below in the real world?” Perhaps it’s that simple, mountains make me feel alive.

Sleeping My Way To The Top

We all spent months preparing for this trip, all in our various ways. Hiking at home, cycling, running, swimming, gym work. All trying to be fit enough to justify our place in the team. You don’t just sign up for a couple of weeks on a mountain, you sign up for a six-month campaign of attrition. My own preparation was a nightmare. I travelled to Scotland in January to practice ice skills, shot off to Norway in February to get a taste for how to dress against the bitter cold, I ran, swam, cycled, and then I fell, badly. I needed 14 stitches in my knee, two month’s rehab and then 6 weeks frantic activity to try and get my weight down and my fitness back. In doing that, I pulled a lateral Meniscus in my ‘good’ knee. I’d blown it – I was heading off to the mountain overweight and with both knees in braces. I was feeling weak and feeble as we went through our acclimatisation walks and ice-drills on Elbrus, waiting for the moment of truth.

I had massive doubts. But I knew others had concerns too; there were worries about altitude sickness from the light air, lack of energy, reaction to food, concerns over gear, how cold or warm would we be on the mountain. We all had our niggles and worries, and the team pulled together and reassured each other as best we could. Finally, summit day approached with Pat, our expedition leader, and Artem, our Russian guide, locking heads over weather patterns and forecasts for the days ahead. The weather was difficult and local knowledge vital for interpreting conditions on the mountain. But we had worked hard as a team and acclimatised well, with walks up to 5,100m, and sessions practising ice skills and ice-axe arrest techniques on the surrounding slopes. We were strong and we were ready. Despite a storm blowing with thunder and lightening just minutes apart and wind shaking our flimsy hut, we finally got the word that we’d go the following morning. Maybe.

We checked our gear and then prepared for an easy day. I slept. I ate breakfast, prepared my pack and clothes for the summit, and went back to bed. We had lunch in the communal hut and discussed the weather and the chances of going and then I went back to bed and slept again. We had our ‘last supper’ together as a team and I went back to bed, rolling into the row of mattresses that I was sharing with 7 other people, and slept again. I knew I had trained all I could, eaten all I could, hydrated all I could, doubted all I could, prepared all I could, now all I had left to do was rest all I could. In my mind, I was ‘sleeping my way to the top’.

 

“At 4am with temperatures of -20 and 35k winds, when the cold punches through your ‘top of the range’ down-jacket like a bullet through paper – you know just how fragile you are.”

2am had come and gone and the team thought the trip was off. But two hours later the call went up. With remarkable skill and daring, Pat and his local experts had spotted a weather window and the game was on.

Tumbling out of the heavy sleeping bag and silk liner, pulling on my extra layers, my ice-breaker vest, and favourite Columbia Teflon top and leggings, I add another precautionary Blisteze patch to my heel, before powdering my feet and double socking. Next my heavy double-boots go on, with gaiters to keep the snow out, Gortex waterproof layers, down jacket, balaclava, hat, gloves with liners under mitts, goggles, head torch, hiking poles, ice-axe. Moving heavily I tie on my 12-spike crampons and finally swing my rucksack onto my back, with food and nearly 2 litres of water. I’m ready to follow the team out into the darkness, into the weak, golden pools of light from our head torches, as we leave our camp behind.

Magic Peaks Around the Traverse

At 5,100m the air is light and my lungs screaming for oxygen as we begin the long traverse under the East Summit of Elbrus. I wonder if my mind has been playing tricks because I’m sure someone said this was a gradual slope. Nothing felt gradual about the incline pushing up against my feet. But in the cold, against the wind, and with the effort of each step, I’m suddenly reminded of another reason I love mountains. The life giving sun begins to dawn, casting pink fingers across the waves of frozen landscape, merging with mountain and clouds and me. The incredible beauty of nature. Off in the distance across the deadly slope I’ve been trying to avoid noticing; the shadow of Elbrus is cast pyramid-like against the surrounding mountains. It’s like a scene from the movie ‘The Summit’ when the awe-inspiring and deadly K2 casts it’s shadow across into China. I thought views like that were only for the silver screen and now I’m seeing the same effect here, with my own eyes. The sweeping beauty all around embraces me and warms my soul as the team push slowly forwards against the spindrift as the 35k winds throw surface snow against our faces, driving temperatures as low as -20.

We reach the ‘saddle’ between Elbrus’ iconic twin peaks and the game changes again. The sun’s up and blasting us with her fiery UV rays as the cold winds continue to hammer us, trying to steal fingers and toes. We rest briefly, then rope up in groups of 4, before tackling the next steep incline. The hardest part of this gruelling challenge is before us. The grail lies ahead and nothing between us, save this icy slope. “It’s a hill” I tell myself, as I push my shoulders forward into the wind. Ice axe in one hand, walking pole in the other, inching forward. I ignore the cold, the wind, the sun. I’m telling myself I’m in the Galtee Mountains back in Ireland with my training buddies Tony Nation and Karen Hill. It’s my pace and we’re pushing up Temple Hill. One foot in front of the other.

Falling Off The Edge Of The World

I’m kicking into the snow and ice with my crampons. I’m
thinking of technique, thinking of efficiency. I feel like dragging my feet forward but know if I don’t use the spikes to connect, my foot will slide and I’ll have an energy sapping jerk, pulling at my sore knee and forcing me to take the step again. So it’s slow, steady, and precise. The familiar mountaineer’s step. One clear stride, resting on your straight leg before kicking forward again with the alternate foot. One of our guides, Sasha, had been talking to me about pressure breathing. Forcing air into your lungs at altitude, without shallow breathing or hyperventilating. So again I concentrated. One step, one breath. Although I felt I was double-timing. Breathing two deep breaths per step. But I wasn’t stopping. I was still moving forward and that was the key. You eat these mountains bite by bite and step by step. I was up front in a line of 4, and occasionally, I’d shout back down the line “lads we have this, lads this is ours , we’re not going back now” and the shouts of encouragement coming back up the line gave me new energy to push harder.

Finally the slope evens out to one last platform before the final summit up ahead. So close I feel I can reach out and touch it. The rest of the team are already there, spread out in bunches of four. Either back in the dip or just dropping down from the summit. There’s breathless congratulations and high fives and reassurances that the summit is just 10 minutes away. The ropes are off, rucksacks abandoned, and we four are on our own again for one last pull. I’m last, but I don’t care, I’m exhausted but I don’t care, I’m sore but I don’t care. I’m having this. I’m taking this. There is no way I’m not going to reach out and grasp this now. Crampons in, 12 points in, push and breath, breath and push. Step after step, lungs screaming, legs screaming, soul soaring. I’m steps away from the summit and I hear some of the team shouting encouragement across the wind. I find new energy and double-time my steps as I pull myself up to stand at the top of Europe. Against clear blue skies, in bright sunlight, I turn around 360 degrees to take in the view, and with a catch in my throat, I slowly realise that TeamElbrus have made it. I’ve made it. 5,642m (18,510ft) the summit of Mount Elbrus.

Never Say ‘Never Again’

Later, much later. We’re eating lamb kebabs, drinking local beer and reminding ourselves of the journey we’ve made, both alone and as a team. I’m making my new buddies promise to remind me, never to do this again. So hard, so tough, so demanding and time-consuming. I’ve had it with mountains. I’m no adrenalin junkie, I know when I’ve had more than enough. I’m off trekking in Spain in October with Travel Department but that’s not about endurance, that’s a holiday. Gorgeous 10k walks in the beautiful Sierra Nevada mountains before heading back to a lovely rural hotel to cool off in the pool. Now that’s civilised. I’m looking forward to walking in Spain. I’ve never done that before. Of course I’ve been walking in other hot climates so I know what to expect and what to wear. I loved hiking in Africa. I climbed Mount Elgon in Uganda before cycling a couple of hundred kilometres over to the Nile to kayak down some white-water rapids. Phyll and Joe from TeamElbrus, they love Africa too. They’ve climbed Kilimanjaro – an amazing mountain they tell me. You know, after Elbrus, and Spain in October, I’d be well fit by next year. Kilimanjaro huh? well maybe just one more mountain….

Success 100% to Everest Base Camp 2012

It was a great attempt by all the team. It was hard, lots of the team suffered but all persisted and achieved a dream of going to Everest, following in the footsteps of those early adventures in a landscape where the mountains reach to the shy in every direction you look. Where the sherpa culture is evident at every turn. We are now descending for celebrations and should be in Kathmandu on the 30th October the long walk out now begins. Well done to all the team. People not tagged on Facebook which also reached base camp. The Quebec connection Jon Maltais, then from Clare Davy Fitz who caught a sliotar hit by Cork's own Pat Falvey. Also from Clare pat Kelly as well as Helen o Donnell from Tipperary. If you know other friends of theirs please share.

Picture: The Buddhist Monks at Tengboche Monastery are an intriguing spectacle as they go about their daily routines.

The trek to Base camp continues as we live amongst the Sherpa people and learn about their culture.

All of the team went to the monastery for afternoon prayers. For all including me it was a spiritual experience that move all of us. The chanting, the drums and horns sent a vibration out throughout the valley. The team were very tired after a strenuous push from Namche Bazar as we weaved our way along the track to our new high point of 3860 meters as we walked along spectacular landscape where the mountains reached to the shy. Everest summit ahead and many more of the highest mountains in the world surrounding us. To the indigenous people who live beneath these it is obvious that the ground and the mountain we are traversing is the abode of their gods.

Some of the team are feeling the effects of the altitude but all are coping well and the experience is overwhelming all of the team as we follow in the footsteps of those early adventures.

Route Description: Easy trekking with a descent then rising through steep forested pathways to Tengboche. A short trek down to Deboche again in forested area.

Also on trek outside names below not on face book. Davy Fitz, Helen O Donnell, Pat Kelly, and Jean Maltais.

Days three and four - Namche Bazaar (3440m):

We are now three days in and we are having an It is acclimatization rest day in Namche. Yesterday was a hard push for the team and some were suffering from altitude related problems but the rest day has sorted all of that and all the team are feeling great today. Tomorrow we move up to Tengboche and all the team can't wait to start moving again. Namche is no more than a village, this is Sherpa capital and trading post between Tibet and Nepal has two museums, several internet cafes, and two pizza houses and three cafes (locally known as bakeries), so there is much to keep us occupied during our stay here.

Kathmandu to Lukla flight. Classified. Exciting. Wednesday 17th

We are now boarding one of the worlds most interesting and fearful flights. We will make our way through the foothills in a small 20 seater Donnier aircraft. at times you feel the wings are going to touch the mountains at either side, some of the passes are only hundreds of feet below you and the you make a fast turn to the right for Lukla to a runway that goes uphill. It is frightening but thrilling. we are now at the start of the trek. I have done this flight about 40 times and like all of the team I have always been fearful. But the journey is worth doing.

All of the team safely landed in Lukla. From there they will trek to Phakding - then Namche Bazaar (3500m) Thursday.
