Head Girl Everest Base Camp Climb Plans

Head Girl Jo Hitchcock begins her training for her charity climb to the Everest basecamp.

  I travelled down to the Brecon Beacons on Friday 6 February afternoon for the first meeting of my expedition leader and the rest of the Student DofE Everest Base Camp and Lobuche East team. The weekend was really useful in gaining knowledge of what to expect from the expedition, and has left me even more excited about the trip. On Sunday we climbed Pen Y Fan, and we were lucky to have amazing weather. It was also a wonderful way to spend my 18th Birthday with a great group of people.
