The first ‘big’ step towards Everest. In July 2012 I joined a team with Dream Guides to climb the highest peak in the Alps at 4,810m high, aged 17. After a week of acclimatising and climbing smaller peaks nearby we summited on the 26th July, taking approx. 6 hours from the Tete Rousse hut.
I also donned an Orangutan costume on the summit to raise awareness for my chosen charity, REACT (Red Endangered Animal Connection Trust) who run conservation projects in Borneo. Great fun!
