Mandy Ramsden

In May 2010, Mandy became the second South African woman to summit Everest; and the first African-born woman to climb all seven of the World’s heighest mountains on each continent. It took this mother of four, with a successful career in investment banking, only five years to knock off the seven mountains, starting with Kili in 2006. Mandy’s posts written during her time on Everest were captivating and insightful, telling of many surprising elements of the mountain that those not up there too are unaware of. She shares these observations at FEAT.
