We are delighted to announce that Mollie summitted Everest on Saturday morning the 19th May and got safely back down to basecamp on Sunday night. We have spoken to her and she is in great spirits and wearing her frost nip like a badge of honour. Huge thanks go out to all her backers particularly the wonderful Mark Evison Foundation (link) and also to the many other individuals and organisations who have contributed in so many ways.
It is a shame some of the press keep getting it wrong though, many congratulations to Leanna Shuttleworth and Becky Bellworthy, both younger than Mollie who also summitted successfully this weekend.
Mollie is now on the 30 mile trek back to Lukla airport from where she flies to Kathmandu and home next week to celebrate.
