Sands also shared his experiences of encountering spooky and potentially life-threatening situations in the mountains. He mentioned the presence of “big nature” and the power it holds, referring to instances where climbers have lost their lives in the Eiger and Andes Mountains.

Despite the risks involved, Sands was passionate about mountaineering. In a 2020 interview with The Guardian, he recounted a dangerous storm he endured with fellow climbers in the Andes Mountains in the 1990s, where some individuals tragically lost their lives.
