This last year has been a busy time for Adele despite having an uncertain start from bed 26, Bay 5, at Chesterfield Royal Hospital, since then Adele has gone from strength to strength and is looking forward to a second year of adventures in the mountains.
Adele has given over fifteen talks at a host of events ranging from Mountaineering Club dinners, charity talks and corporate speeches. The Safety aspect is of paramount importance to APM and is at the forefront of every adventure so giving two presentations called “Summit or Survive” for the Mountaineering Council of Scotland’s safety lectures was a very rewarding experience. As well as working Adele has been ensuring that, after her long stay in hospital, she has returned to fitness in the high mountains. In her trips to the Alps and Ecuador she reached a high point of 6100m on Chimborazo and topped out on Cayambe. Although there has been little time for her own climbing this winter, Adele has made sure that she keeps on top and has built in lots of variety with visits to the Cairngorms and tackling different routes in the West.
From the 3rd July to 26th July Adele will be heading out to Ladakh with some students from the Royal Grammar School Worcester. After this Adele will resume private summer and autumn rock climbing and will then embark on a personal trip to climb Kyajo Ri in Nepal. Next winter will see a trip to Mt Kenya, more Norwegian ice and as usual lots of Scottish winter mountaineering.
