When people talk to us about our Endurance challenges they are super excited about us attempting to row the Atlantic, and the fact that we have swam the English Channel and completed a 120 kilometre Ultra run across Scotland in just over 24 hours.
But the challenge that seems to capture everyones imagination the most is our attempt to Climb Mont Blanc and Fly from its summit on paragliders.
Climbing Mont Blanc is not easy, after all it’s the highest mountain in the Alps and Western Europe.
The ‘White Mountain’ is 4,807 m above sea level, and its summit is covered in snow all year. Therefore the climb will be challenging and technical and altitude will play a factor.
Flying from the summit on light weight ‘mini’ paragliders and returning to Chamonix will be the icing on the cake, however many factors including wind, weather, conditions at the summit and new restrictions on when pilots can fly from her will all come into play.
Team ambassador, Climber and Adventurer Squash Falconer was the first British woman to complete this challenge 11 years ago. We hope to emulate her success.
Keep an eye out for further details coming soon!
