Lim is best known in Asia and abroad for leading the
1st Singapore Mt Everest Expedition in 1998 which
succeeded in placing two members on the summit. The
climb captured the imagination of the entire country
and helped reset the parameters of what could be
achieved by the small and flat island nation. A week
after returning from Everest, he experienced a
life-and-death struggle with Guillain-Barre
Syndrome, a serious nerve disorder. The disorder
totally paralyzed and hospitalized him for six
months. David is now partially disabled as a result.
DISPATCHES: We reached the summit of Elbrus, 5,642m just
before 9am. Started the climb at 2am. The winds were
strong and a bit nippy... much of the route up was snow
covered, crusty with a bit of crunch!! (stomach
talking). We are all OK, feeling great about the climb
but very tired. We are down, back at camp... resting,
drinking and resting...Dave
