Becks Ferry is back in the Nepal Himalaya mountains 2023 for Makalu, but with a twist – she will climb the fifth highest peak at 27,825 feet/8481 meters without supplemental oxygen and then run the 225 miles back to Kathmandu!
In 2021, along with British Professional Mountain Guide Jon Gupta, they climbed on six peaks reaching the main summits of three.
- Everest (Summit)
- Makalu (reached 7500m)
- Lhotse (Summit)
- K2 (Summit)
- Manaslu (Fore Summit ~8160m)
- Dhaulagiri (reached 7817m)
We cover a range of topics, from how this mother of five children, ages 13 to 19, got into climbing to all the climbs in this fast-paced interview. I think you’ll enjoy meeting Becks, hearing about her family and, why she climbs and her Makalu project.
