In April 2014, Horrell returned to Nepal with the Altitude Junkies expedition hoping to climb Lhotse, the fourth-highest mountain in the world, which shares a base camp and climbing route with Mount Everest. He dreamed of following in the footsteps of Tenzing Norgay and Edmund Hillary, by climbing through the infamous ice maze of the Khumbu Icefall, and he yearned to sleep in the grand amphitheatre of Everest Base Camp, surrounded by towering peaks.

He was also intrigued by the media publicity surrounding commercial expeditions to Everest. He wanted to discover for himself whether it had become the circus that everybody described.
However, when a devastating avalanche swept across the Khumbu Icefall, he got more than he bargained for. Suddenly he found himself witnessing the greatest natural disaster Everest had ever seen. And that was just the start. Everest Sherpas came out in protest, issuing a list of demands to the Government of Nepal. What happened next left his team shocked, bewildered and fearing for their safety.

Horrell has been on numerous expeditions around the world including Mount Kenya (2002), Kilimanjaro (2002, 2016), Ras Dashen & Bwahit (2004), Stok Kangri (2005), Cerro Bonete (2005), Mount Stanley (2006), Mount Speke and Mount Baker (2006), Lhakpa Ri (2007), Muztag Ata (2007), Yangchan Kangri (2007), Chulu Far East (2008), Iztaccihuatl (2008), Pico de Orizaba (2008), Nevado de Toluca (2008), Mera Peak (2004, 2009), Rucu Pichincha & Ruminahui Central (2009), Gokyo Ri (2009), Island Peak (2009), Gasherbrum I & II (2009), Antisana (2009), Cotopaxi (2010), Cho Oyu (2010), Baruntse (2010), Aconcagua (2006, 2010), Ritacuba Blanco (2011), Manaslu (2011), Denali (2013), Everest (2007, 2012, 2014), Elbrus (2012), Volcan Tajumulco (2013), Ishinca (2014), Jebel Toubkai (2003, 2014), Ouanoukrim (2014), Urus Este (2014), Cholatse (2014), Pumori (2014), Peak Lenin (2015), Iliniza Norte (2015), Pasochoa Norte (2015), Corazon (2015), Cayambe (2016), Chimborazo (2016), Mount Meru (2016), and Yala Peak (2017).
