The fitness enthusiast and global adventurer from Lancashire, left the rowing machine in an emergency hut near the top. Mr. Disney, 36, said he was very disappointed not to have completed the ascent with the machine, saying the main reason was poor visibility due to bad weather. He did, however, go on to reach the top without it. Shortly after descending, he said on Facebook he intended to go back up between September 12 and 30 to retrieve the rowing machine, reach the summit and return with the equipment.
