Robert Hill is the inspiration behind the No Guts Know Glory 7 Summits campaign. Diagnosed with Crohn’s disease at age 23, having had ostomy surgery several years later to remove his diseased colon, Rob made a commitment to raise awareness of intestinal disease by traveling to far places and climbing to extreme heights.

Ágúst, from Reykjavík – Iceland, got an ostomy in 2008 and has been quite active ever since. Two years into having ostomy he went to the Alps and did blogs and video blogs about that journey, you can see all about it on hgoingup2010.wordpress.com. Ágúst is a mountaineer and works as a guide in Iceland and is planning to be the guide for this great adventure. He is really looking forward to have fun with people with similar life experiences and zest for life.
Rob and Ágúst are like brothers of another mother and Rob has been pleading Ágúst to join him, for years. Now, finally for Rob, Ágúst can participate.
