Upon his return home, Clarke immediately began planning and fundraising his return to Everest. In 1994, with a team of 13 other North Americans Jamie climbed the north route, making it within 150m of the summit before poor weather and altitude sickness forced the whole group to descend. In 1997, however, Jamie became the 9th Canadian to achieve the summit of Mt. Everest. He returned to summit the mountain again on May 17, 2010. In the years between his first attempt to summit Everest, and his second time reaching its peak, Jamie crossed The Empty Quarter of Arabia by camel on a 40-day expedition (1997), and climbed all seven of the Seven Summits (1993-2008).
