Carol was the inspiration for this trip; it’s funny how something so exciting can evolve from a purely co-incidental conversation in Curler’s Rest on Byres Road! Since then, Carol has been contacting outdoor companies for us to secure equipment and support for the expedition. She has also taken on the tedious task of calculating how much food we will need to take with us and what is the most calorific by weight.
Carol lives in Aberdeen where the mountains and the sea make a great playground. She has explored the Chinese Tien Shan and learnt survival in the New Zealand backcountry. She has explored the alps in summer and in winter on skis. She leads up to HVS, Scottish Grade IV and D routes in the Alps. She is 30 years old, ML qualified and has a valid first aid certificate.
