Eager as always to learn of any news, we were thrilled to receive word from Alyssa Azar as to her most recent efforts to become the youngest female and youngest Australian to scale Mt Everest – a goal she hopes to achieve next year:
“I just wanted to touch base and give you a rundown of what I have coming up and to also express my sincerest thank you for your support.
- May, Aussie 10: I am aiming to complete the ten highest peaks in Australia, this time back to back and non-stop. This will hopefully be done in 24 hours.
- September, Mt Manaslu in Nepal: at 8,100m this is the 8th highest mountain in the world and will be my first exposure over 8000m.
- November, Mt Aconcagua in Argentina: this is one of the Seven Summits and is the highest mountain in the Americas at 6,960m. It will be my third of the Seven Summits – I hope to eventually get through them all.
Once again I thank you for your support and look forward to offering you further feedback on my progression towards the summit of Mount Everest.
Yours in Adventure, Alyssa Azar (Adventurer)”
