Wowee, what a photo from @black.crag We are in awe of this powerful shot!!! #AscentToPrevent #EverestBaseCamp #PreventBreastCancer Posted @withrepost@black.crag ⁠⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ M O T H E R⁠ ⁠⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Good evening instabuddies! Hope you're all packed and ready for an action-filled weekend ahead - I'm not⁠ 🙈 ⁠⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Jeepers, it seems like a lifetime since I last posted. In fact, I'm not even sure I know how to do this Instagram thing anymore ⁠😂 ⁠⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Well, having just returned from Nepal after a WONDERFUL two-and-a-bit weeks trekking with some of the finest of humanity (trekkers and locals), it'd be plain ol' wrong to not post a photo from the trip. I still haven't sorted through them yet but I had a quick shufti today and plucked this one out as a good starter for 10.⁠ ⁠⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This mountain features in about 90% of my photos so there will be a steady stream (spam) of them coming in future. But can you name it? The title of this post is a clue.⁠ ⁠⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Finally, I just want to say a HUGE THANK YOU to all those who have donated to Prevent Breast Cancer. We hit £100,000 while we were away and I believe the total now stands at around £114,000. That is a staggering amount of money; especially for a small organisation like this. Pretty much all of it will be used for awareness campaigns and groundbreaking scientific research. If you would still like to donate you can visit my website (link in bio) and go to the Donate page. It'll take a few seconds but your donation will help saves lives. ⁠ ⁠⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #ascenttoprevent

D•A•Y •S•I•X•T•E•E•N⠀ ⠀ A day of relaxing and sightseeing for our mighty explorers today. From visiting the temples of Bodnath and Swayambhunath (The Monkey Temple), to simply wandering around Thamel, today has been a fascinating and much deserved experience for everyone. ⠀ ⠀ #AscentToPrevent #PreventBreastCancer #EverestBaseCamp2019

SPOTLIGHT ON 🔦Phoebe ⠀ ⠀ Phoebe has been working at Prevent Breast Cancer as the Sports Fundraiser since September 2018, after graduating from the University of Manchester with a history degree. She has been an integral part of the team helping the charity to reach new heights (and we're not just talking about Everest 😉). Phoebe's outstanding contribution to helping Prevent Breast Cancer be selected as the official charity partner of Ride London has helped the charity's profile springboard. ⠀ ⠀ Phoebe chose to travel to Everest to offer her support for the other team members on the trek. In addition to the challenging trek, Phoebe will be liaising with the team back in Wythenshawe and helping to keep our followers informed on social media. ⠀ ⠀ #AscentToPrevent #EverestBaseCamp2019 #PreventBreastCancer #Everest #EverestBaseCampTrek #Everest2019 #Mountains #Mountain #MountainLife #Mountaineering #MountainView #MountainViews #Climbing #Climbing_pictures_of_instagram #ClimbingLife #Climb #Climber #InstaGood #Friends #Family #Himalayas #BreastCancerCharity #BreastCancer

Everest Expedition: Day 16 - Kathmandu ⠀ ⠀ As the team return to Kathmandu and enjoy the comforts of a warm bed in a hotel they need to remember an important custom about greetings. People in Kathmandu, and indeed the whole of the country do not greet each other with a handshake. They touch their palms and bow saying 'Namaste' which is translated to mean 'I salute the God in you'.⠀ ⠀ #AscentToPrevent #EverestBaseCamp2019 #PreventBreastCamp#Everest #EverestBaseCampTrek #Everest2019 #Mountains #Mountain #MountainLife #Mountaineering #MountainView #MountainViews #Climbing #Climbing_pictures_of_instagram #ClimbingLife #Climb #Climber #InstaGood #Friends #Family #Himalayas #BreastCancerCharity #BreastCancer

SPOTLIGHT ON 🔦 Catherine and Richard⠀ ⠀ First of all, Happy Birthday, Catherine!⠀ ⠀ Catherine and Richard are raising money for Prevent Breast Cancer in aid of their friend Laurie, who passed away 6 years ago leaving a husband and children behind. Catherine and Richard have noted the importance of how they're raising awareness and funds for the only UK charity that focuses on preventing rather than curing breast cancer. Without a doubt, their personal circumstances have helped them drive up the mountains when times got tough! ⠀ ⠀ https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/CatherineIrwin3 ⠀ ⠀ #AscentToPrevent #EverestBaseCamp2019 #PreventBreastCancer #Everest #EverestBaseCampTrek #Everest2019 #Mountains #Mountain #MountainLife #Mountaineering #MountainView #MountainViews #Climbing #Climbing_pictures_of_instagram #ClimbingLife #Climb #Climber #InstaGood #Friends #Family #Himalayas #BreastCancerCharity #BreastCancer

SPOTLIGHT ON 🔦Yasmin, who is completing the trek with her daughter, Amber⠀ ⠀ “I was diagnosed with breast cancer nine years ago. At the time, my two children were in school –my daughter, Amber, was about to sit her A-levels. I didn’t break the news to her until after she finished her final exam. It was an incredibly difficult time –I wanted to be strong for my children, but it’s such devastating news to hear.⠀ ⠀ I found out when I was at the Nightingale Centre that I would need chemotherapy, and when I came out, I saw Sally Dynevor in the waiting room. At that point, she had lost her hair, and I remember thinking ‘she’s so brave’. I went over to her and told her what I had just heard from the doctors, and she immediately gave me a hug. She was so supportive, and meeting her definitely made me feel a bit more positive about my situation.⠀ ⠀ A lot of reflection went into my decision to sign up for the Everest trek. I was discharged from the hospital last year, so I did have some worries –am I biting off more than I can chew? Am I fit enough? In the end, I decided to take a chance on it. I knew it would be an amazing experience and an opportunity to raise money for Prevent. My daughter has signed up too, which will make it even more special –and, of course, Sally Dynevor will be there too!"⠀ ⠀ You can sponsor the ladies here : ⠀ https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/AmberHaqueEveresthttps://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/YasminHaque⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #AscentToPrevent #EverestBaseCamp2019 #PreventBreastCancer #Everest #EverestBaseCampTrek #Everest2019 #Mountains #Mountain #MountainLife #Mountaineering #MountainView #MountainViews #Climbing #Climbing_pictures_of_instagram #ClimbingLife #Climb #Climber #InstaGood #Friends #Family #Himalayas #BreastCancerCharity #BreastCancer

D•A•Y •F•I•F•T•E•E•N⠀ ⠀ On another small plane, and from the world's most dangerous airport, our intrepid trekkers have flown back from Lukla to Kathmandu. ⠀ ⠀ #AscentToPrevent #EverestBaseCamp2019 #PreventBreastCancer #Everest #EverestBaseCampTrek #Everest2019 #Mountains #Mountain #MountainLife #Mountaineering #MountainView #MountainViews #Climbing #Climbing_pictures_of_instagram #ClimbingLife #Climb #Climber #InstaGood #Friends #Family #Himalayas #BreastCancerCharity #BreastCancer

Day 15 - Lukla Airport⠀ ⠀ Today the team have been travelling via Lukla Airport. Year on year, Lukla Airport seems to win the title of 'most dangerous airport in the world'. There are a number of contributing factors including: how short the runway is, the 2,000 feet drop at the end of it, the angle of the runway and the lack of navigational aids. All of these issues combine to make this a perfect storm of conditions. Even flying Ryan Air seems like a luxury in comparison!⠀ ⠀ #AscentToPrevent #EverestBaseCamp2019 #PreventBreastCamp#Everest #EverestBaseCampTrek #Everest2019 #Mountains #Mountain #MountainLife #Mountaineering #MountainView #MountainViews #Climbing #Climbing_pictures_of_instagram #ClimbingLife #Climb #Climber #InstaGood #Friends #Family #Himalayas #BreastCancerCharity #BreastCancer

SPOTLIGHT ON 🔦 Glenn⠀ ⠀ Glenn is taking on Everest to help protect mothers, wives and daughters and prevent breast cancer for future generations. In 2012 his mother-in-law was diagnosed with breast cancer. Thankfully she was treated and has been cancer-free for about 7 years. ⠀ ⠀ He has chosen to support Prevent Breast Cancer because he believes early detection and prevention is something we should be striving for. ⠀ ⠀ Glenn is also an extremely talented photographer and has become our designated cameraman.⠀ ⠀ Glenn has been supported by @fstopgear and has made his trek using f-stop Ajna+Medium ICU+ Accessory Pouches. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ Still time to support Glenn here - https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/blackcrag ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #AscentToPrevent #EverestBaseCamp2019 #PreventBreastCancer #Everest #EverestBaseCampTrek #Everest2019 #Mountains #Mountain #MountainLife #Mountaineering #MountainView #MountainViews #Climbing #Climbing_pictures_of_instagram #ClimbingLife #Climb #Climber #InstaGood #Friends #Family #Himalayas #BreastCancerCharity #BreastCancer#fstopgear #fstopcommunity

SPOTLIGHT ON 🔦 Sally⠀ ⠀ @sallydynevor has been a supporter of the charity since undergoing treatment for breast cancer 10 years ago. Through her regular role as Sally Metcalfe on Coronation Street, she has been able to use her profile to help encourage women to be more breast aware. ⠀ ⠀ Sally signed up to the Everest expedition in order to celebrate beating breast cancer 10 years ago. "Taking part in an 18 day trek wasn’t a decision I took lightly. However, it is for a cause that is particularly close to my heart and I aim to raise as much as I can for Prevent Breast Cancer."⠀ ⠀ We are excited to have Sally on board⠀ ⠀ You can sponsor Sally here : https://buff.ly/35jVYIM ⠀ ⠀ #AscentToPrevent #EverestBaseCamp2019 #PreventBreastCancer #Everest #EverestBaseCampTrek #Everest2019 #Mountains #Mountain #MountainLife #Mountaineering #MountainView #MountainViews #Climbing #Climbing_pictures_of_instagram #ClimbingLife #Climb #Climber #InstaGood #Friends #Family #Himalayas #BreastCancerCharity #BreastCancer

Everest Expedition: Day 14 - Lukla ⠀ ⠀ Today marks the final day of the trek as the team return to Lukla today. Lukla literally translates to 'place with many goats and sheep' however, few are found there now.⠀ ⠀ #AscentToPrevent #EverestBaseCamp2019 #PreventBreastCamp#Everest #EverestBaseCampTrek #Everest2019 #Mountains #Mountain #MountainLife #Mountaineering #MountainView #MountainViews #Climbing #Climbing_pictures_of_instagram #ClimbingLife #Climb #Climber #InstaGood #Friends #Family #Himalayas #BreastCancerCharity #BreastCancer
