Hi it’s Heather here. Day 15 of the expedition.
Finally back to civilisation and able to proudly share our summit picture from Ojos del Salado - the world’s highest volcano at 6893m! I can speak on behalf of everyone that this was the hardest thing I have ever done in my life. Every step above 6500m felt utterly exhausting but we were determined to fly the FWC flag.
Prior to applying for the volcano most of the ladies had never climbed a mountain and most definitely didn’t own any walking boots 😂. They now practically own Go Outdoors and all submitted a 4100m, 5100m peak with 8 summiting a 6000m peak and 6 climbing the second highest peak in the Southern Hemisphere (on International Women’s Day).
I was told by so many people that it was too ambitious but hopefully we’ve proved that with determination, dedication and a team of badass ladies you really can achieve anything. 💪🌋👊
The question is... what’s next? 🏔🏃♀️🏊♀️🚴♀️⛵️🛶⛷🏂
The FWC team are raising money for the Royal British Legion who work tirelessly to support forces families. If you’d like to support the FWC girls who would like to give something back to the RBL, and would like to make a donation, that would be ace.
