"If you cannot understand that there is something in man that responds to the challenge of this mountain and goes out to meet it, that the struggle is the struggle of life itself upward and forever upward, then you won't see why we go. What we get from this adventure is just sheer joy. And joy is, after all, the end of life. We do not live to eat and make money. We eat and make money to be able to enjoy life. That is what life means and what life is for."

If successful, she will join a handful of South Africans to have reached the highest point of each continent.

The journey so far has taken her to some of the most remote and beautiful corners of the world.  Join her on her quest to stand on top of the world.
