When is this event?
From make shift tents in the garden to climbing the 8000m Peaks. Adele Pennington tells her story of how she made her decision to have a full time career in the mountains after a serious fall in the Alps which left her wheel chair bound for 8 months. The journey that has taken her all around the world experiencing life and culture. Not to mention her very close shave with death on Makalu in 2010.
After a brief career as an Academic and Chemistry school teacher Adele now lives in the Highlands and works as a Winter Mountaineering and Climbing Instructor. Throughout her Mountaineering career Adele has climbed extensively around the world and has had an affinity for climbing at high Altitude. To date she has climbed six 8000m peaks and made some first ascents of mountains in Bolivia and India. Above all though Adele is passionate about her Scottish Mountains and never gives the chance up to have a good day out on the hill.
