Adele Penington Lecture - Sheffield
14th Dec 2009 @ 20:30
A year in the death zone; Everest (8848m), Cho-Oyu ( 8201m) Manaslu (8156m ) in 361 days.
Adele Pennington is a Sheffield based Mountaineer who made her dreams come true by standing on the summit of Everest on the 23rd May 2008; just to check it was not a complete dream she made another ascent of Everest on the 20th May 2009 to make her the first British woman to climb Everest twice.
After following a career as a chemistry teacher Adele changed tact and decided to spend her life in the mountains rather than in the classroom and now works for an expedition company Jagged Globe.
In the past twenty years Adele has amassed a formidable number of mountaineering summits and is never without a future plan. Whether it is walking in the Lake District or scaling the highest mountains in the world Adele enthusiasm never dwindles and her attitude to her climbing is never too serious.
Adele will be giving an inspirational talk about her life story and how she made her dream of climbing Everest come true.
