Bear Grylls, one of the most recognized faces of survival and outdoor adventure became our second Rock Star Ambassador in 2010.
Most famous for being the youngest British climber to climb Everest on May 26th 1998 when he was 23 years old, Bear has successfully completed many worldwide expeditions including scaling Mount Ama Dablam in the Himalayas and leading a team across the freezing North Atlantic Arctic Ocean in a small rigid inflatable boat! He spent 3 years with the British Special Air Service (21 SAS) before focusing on his dream of attempting the ultimate ascent of the world’s highest peak. In 2007 he became the first man to fly a powered paraglider to a height above Mount Everest raising money for Global Angels and childrens charities worldwide.
He is a bestselling author, TV presenter and a regular guest of TV shows including Friday night with Jonathan Ross and Jay Leno’s tonight show in the US.
Bear is a committed Christian and lives with his wife and 3 sons splitting his time between a boat on the Thames in London and a small Welsh Island.
When asked why he agreed to support Rock UK in agreeing to become our newest Rock Star he said “Rock UK truly rock! I fully support their work and love their ethos of adventure, faith, and friendships. What a winning combination!”
