ARIYA WON THE AWARD WITH TRAIL MAGAZINE
Proud moment when we found out this week that Ariya was chosen By Trail Magazine and The Marmot awards to win the Young Everester award.
At just 2.5 years old she walked the height of her first Everest anywhere challenge.
At 4 years old in 202 she had climbed over 4 Everest's which is pretty good considering half of the year we have all been in Lockdown.
In 2020 she has climbed 3 Munros in the Cairngorms and Tryfan a grade 1 scramble in Snowdonia, she is always full of energy and loves rolling down the hills afterwards.
Don't get me wrong in the early days when she was 2-3 years old it was so much harder than today. We had to plan ever walk in depth as she would stop every 5 minutes to pick up stones or sticks, and we took lots and lots of snack stops.
A 3 hour walk would take 6 hours, but it was worth it to get where we are today.
She will happily walk 8 miles with no complaints, she has slept on a mountain, loves camping and exploring.
Thank you to The Marmot awards and trail magazine for choosing Ariya
