Mollie Hughes: Everest Challenge

In January, I was luck enough to attend a presentation by Mollie Hughes. She spoke about her 2012 Everest summit, which at 21 made her one of the youngest British climbers to reach the top of the world.

The presentation was exciting, in places a bit grim, but definitely inspiring.  It didn’t matter that high altitude climbing is not something that I aspire to – Mollie focused in on the qualities that a person needed to achieve any challenge and that made her presentation engaging to everyone in the room.

Very soon, Mollie is heading off to Everest again. this time she hope to summit from the Tibet side of the mountain. This would make her one of few who has summited Everest from both sides – the youngest Briton and also the first English woman too.

I’ll following Mollie’s journey through her twitter and her own blog, and wish her the best of luck!
