Women & the Wilderness

Mar 25, 2021

Marta, originally from Poland, now lives in London, England. She credits this move for opening her eyes to new experiences and adventures. After the move, her love for travel, and the outdoors, grew immensely. But the more she traveled, the bigger her accomplishments on her agenda grew.

She is challenging herself to climb the 7 tallest summits on each continent, known as the 7 Summits, and The Crown of Europe, the tallest peak in each European country. Now, she is preparing to climb her sixth summit, Everest, in April 2021.

In this episode, we talk all about how she’s prepared for the climb both mentally and physically, what she’s doing to acclimatize before leaving for Nepal, the logistics of what the summit push will be, the structure of an Everest expedition, how she finds her gear, mental toughness and what it means to be able to climb Everest.
