Over the past 10 years I have been inspiring the next generation through engagement with nature. There is nothing more rewarding for me than watching young people thrive in an outdoor environment, but there was just one problem, I wasn’t listening to my own advice.
I found the allure of climbing mountains particularly appealing but the thought terrified me...where do you start? I had walking boots, my rucksack was a laptop bag, I had leggings, an old hoody and a cheap waterproof. I was essentially a walking disaster waiting to happen.
