Alexandra had her first taste of climbing mountains in March 2012 when she made a solo three-week trek in the Nepal Himalayas. The experience was life changing and inspired Alexandra to reach even greater heights by setting one of the biggest goals of her life so far – to climb the 7 Summits.
Alexandra tackled the first of the 7 Summits on 9 June 2014 as a very proud member of the first team to summit Russia’s Mt. Elbrus, the highest mountain in
Europe, from the difficult north side in pre-season.
Less than six weeks later, on the 17th of July, Alexandra successfully climbed Mont Blanc solo, without a guide, team or support. She summited at 6.45am, reaching the top in just over four hours. She has also successfully summited Kilimanjaro in September, second of her ‘7summits’. On the 6th of December 2014, Alexandra stood on the top of the highest point of Antarctica, Mt Vinson. After months of hard training and preparation she summited one of the most challenging one; North America’s highest peak Denali in June 2015. Continuing her 100% summit success, she climbed Aconcagua in South America on the 2nd of January 2016, the highest mountain in the world outside the Himalayas.
