Peaks summited: She’s lost count
Anna grew up in the Lake District, with the outdoors on her doorstep. Her dad hooked her on climbing at the local wall. And she’s only gone further, and higher, since.
Anna’s a big Classic Rock fan. The book, that is.
Heading further out – and further up
In 2019, she explored the yellow-slimed jungles and steep faces of Venezuela’s Mount Roraima with a team led by Leo Houlding.
They spent nearly a month hiking uphill, hacking through the jungle, and hanging off cliffs. The result – worth it.
But you don’t have to find a sludgy rainforest to enjoy yourself. As Anna says, the outdoors is there for everyone. Make the most of it.
