Christine to become the first woman to climb all hills over 2,000 feet in the UK and Ireland
Posted: 9th October 2019
Next week she is set to become the first woman in the UK to have climbed all 1699 mountains over 2000ft in Scotland and Ireland, and will raise money for Scottish Mountain Rescue during her final trek.
After climbing her first mountain more than three decades ago, Christine Gordon never thought she would try such a feat again. Her feet ached, she was cold, wet and had trouble walking for days afterwards. Once the discomfort passed however, the 69-year-old felt an incredible sense of achievement and a calmness that she found boosted her mood. It was that feeling of wellbeing that encouraged her to try again … and again … almost every month for the past 35 years.
